Collins Bus Booth #111 to Feature Westport E-450 Cutaway Chassis
The chassis on exhibit at Booth #111 gives attendees a chance to see the unique Westport CNG system. With NEXBUS® agencies such as school districts, child and senior care facilities and municipalities can enjoy the benefit of the historical price stability of natural gas and decreased emissions.
“We are very pleased to partner with Westport to begin offering a CNG bus model in the fastest growing segment of the alternative fuel school bus market,” said Kent Tyler, president and CEO of Allied Specialty Vehicles’ bus division and interim president of Collins Bus. “As Ford’s largest qualified vehicle modifier, Westport’s CNG expertise and proven technology allows us to offer the most reliable clean energy Type A school bus model available to meet the evolving needs of our dealers and diverse customer base.”
“Westport is continuing to demonstrate our position as an industry leader by offering the first-ever Ford-recognized Type A school bus that runs on natural gas,” says Paul Shaffer, vice president and managing director of Westport Dallas. “Our team of engineers worked with Ford and Collins Bus to conduct extensive simulations and physical crash-testing to meet the stringent school bus safety requirements. With the distinct price and emissions benefits of natural gas, we’re excited to offer a CNG powered product to school districts.”
