The Blue Bird All American Rear Engine school bus powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) stands in the industry as an example of Blue Bird’s commitment to providing customers with the alternative fuel transportation solutions their unique market needs require.
Having been the first major school bus manufacturer to offer CNG as a fuel option in a full-size bus in 1991, Blue Bird has a rich history with providing alternative fuel products that stand up to the highest safety and performance standards, and the All American Rear Engine powered by the Cummins ISL-G CNG continues that tradition. In addition to meeting all applicable school bus Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS), the All American Rear Engine powered by CNG provides customers with many other advantages, including:
