(January 8 2018 – Colton, California) A-Z Bus Sales, Inc., a leading provider of transportation solutions, announces the Blue Bird Electric Bus Ride and Drive Event across California. The event tour begins in Bellflower, California on January 8th showcasing Blue Bird’s All American Type D Rear-Engine electric school bus powered by Adomani/EDI. The event tours six cities in California stretching from Southern to Northern California, ending on January 17th in Fremont, California.
Blue Bird first announced the electric All American school bus at last year’s School Transportation News Expo and Show in Reno, Nevada. The Type D transit school bus is an all-electric bus powered by Adomani/EDI drive train and the first type in its class of school buses. “Blue Bird continues to lead the industry in alternative fuel options and now zero emissions technology,” said Brandon Bluhm, Director of New School Bus Sales at A-Z Bus Sales. “We are thrilled at the reception of such an innovative product and proud to have the opportunity to show both A-Z Bus and Blue Bird’s commitment to green technology where it will matter most, benefitting our school children.”
The electric bus is gaining popularity in California since it is a zero emissions vehicle and helps in the reduction of climate-changing gases, improved air quality, and a reduction of dependency on petroleum consumption. The new Blue Bird electric buses’ popularity is fueled by the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) announcement that the Blue Bird Type D transit bus is now Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) approved. “As the HVIP approved dealer, we are here to assist school transportation managers to apply for an HVIP voucher for the new Blue Bird All American Type D electric school bus,” said John Landherr, President, and CEO of A-Z Bus Sales. “Additionally, CARB recently announced the FT 17-18 Funding Plan that now includes $188M for HVIP and the purchase incentive has increased to $220,000.”
A-Z Bus will begin delivering the Blue Bird All American Electric School Bus this year, 2018. Interested parties who wish to view and learn more about the Blue Bird electric school bus are encouraged to attend one of the six California events.
