Operations; Houston Independent School District, TX
While our main mission is
transporting the District’s students, we have a strong
commitment to the entire community’s welfare. Preserving
our environment factors into everything we do, from our
natural gas buses to the maintenance garage and how we
work on a daily basis. We constantly factor
sustainability into our operations. Our natural gas bus
program has proven that our commitment to clean air
vehicles works. The national recognition we received
from being the #3 Government Green Fleet has been
tremendous. We have been written up in numerous
transportation and pupil transport magazines, we were
recently filmed for the PBS show Motorweek, and we have
hosted technical staff from the National Transportation
Safety Board who were looking for an expert CNG fleet to
document procedures. I get telephone calls and e-mails
from around Pennsylvania, and around the county every
week asking about our program. We know that we are doing
the right thing.
