Gas buses offer numerous advantages when your transportation needs are light. Choose a gas bus when your primary focus is passenger transportation with minimal stops. Typical applications include school buses, day care buses and parking shuttles for hospitality, health care and travel industries.
Gas buses provide key benefits when traveling fewer than 30,000 miles annually:
- Power: Gasoline engines offer high horsepower, resulting in sufficient strength for short-distance travel.
- Upfront costs: A gas bus requires a lower initial investment than buses that use alternative fuel sources.
- Overhead expenses: Gasoline’s price per gallon is lower than other fuel types. Similarly, the cost to repair a gas bus is often lower than other types, and the maintenance interval is longer.
