Cummins project helps BCSC reduce fuel costs


Follow The Republic:


A Cummins project to reduce fuel costs for Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. could reap benefits for school corporations throughout the country.

In BCSC alone, the recommended changes could save more than $45,000 per year, if the existing fleet is upgraded and new bus purchase specifications have the modifications.

A lot depends on how widely the suggested modifications are implemented in new school buses, but the changes could ultimately result in millions of dollars in fuel savings per year nationwide.

With widespread implementation the upgrades are also projected to greatly reduce the carbon footprint of school buses.
