IC Bus Propane in Warren County

IC Bus PropaneBluegrass International toured the Commonwealth with the new IC Bus propane school bus powered by the Power Solutions International (PSI) 8.8L propane engine and Allison 2500PTS transmission. The bus was on loan from International, and stopped at the school bus garages in Warren County, Laurel County, Johnson County, Hardin County, Henderson County, Graves County, and Boone County from September 14th through 25th. All districts were invited to send personnel to learn about and drive International’s propane solution school bus. The PSI 8.8L engine is rated at 270 H.P./565 lb.-ft. torque, and governed at 2600 RPM – providing a low speed/high torque application similar in characteristics and drivability to the Cummins ISB diesel engine. There was also representation from AmeriGas and Ferrellgas to provide information about fuel availability and fueling station options.
