(January 11, 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 began in Bellflower, California on January 8 and is working its way to Northern California, ending in Fremont on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. On Friday, January 12, the Blue Bird All American Type D school bus makes its appearance at Central Unified School District at 4200 N. R Grantland Avenue in Fresno, California.
The event has already gained popularity at its last four Southern California stops, despite some rain. A few locations witnessed standing room only during the brief presentation of the electric school bus by Blue Bird, Adomani, and A-Z Bus Sales team members. Attendees have the opportunity to see first-hand how the electric bus operates and ask questions about HVIP grant funding during the event. Brandon Bluhm, Director of New School Bus Sales at A-Z Bus Sales stated, “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 FY 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 the Ride and Drive event at Central Unified School District on Friday.
