Over 200 Washington school buses are running on propane. Schools save money by reduced costs of overall maintenance (fluids, filters), repairs, and fuel while keeping students safe.

Durham Bus Services

Durham Bus Services provides buses for Spokane Public Schools, adding 54 propane powered buses early last month. Durham now runs 70 propane powered buses in their fleet.

"We're proud to help that along, and we're proud to cut down on all the particulates in the ait. It's a safer footprint."

General manager, Santos Picacio, is proud to have Durham doing their part in Washington’s statewide eco-friendly initiative. 

Durham bus services plans to have 25 percent of its fleet powered by propane by the 2020 school year, which will be the largest roll out of propane powered buses in the Inland Northwest. 

You too can save on the cost of converting your school fleets to propane autogas, with the $1,500 rebate from the Pacific Propane Gas Association. Go to to learn more.
