Mesa Public Schools Receives Accolades for Propane Autogas Fleet


The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has presented Arizona-based Mesa Public Schools with this year's Propane Autogas Fleet award, which recognizes an organization for its autogas initiatives.

Mesa Public Schools operates the largest school bus fleet in Arizona, and it has converted 89 of its 517 buses to propane autogas. Each of those buses saves the district about $6,500 in fuel costs annually.

‘The fuel is green, safe and proven, and we plan to keep converting diesel buses until we run 100 percent on propane autogas,’ says Ron Latko, Mesa Public School's director of transportation and vehicle maintenance.
