Toronto, Ontario – Student Transportation of Canada (STC) has announced the expansion of its biodiesel fuel program to more than 235 of its 1,000 yellow school buses operating throughout Ontario.
“At STC, we all share a common concern for our children’s health and the environment,” said Chris Harwood, senior vice president of operations for STC. “Realizing a 40 per cent reduction in greenhouse gases and reducing tailpipe emissions are our primary objectives for the conversion. The added bonus for the company, and our customers, is that cleaner biodiesel fuels also cost less and reduce wear and tear on our engines, further reducing maintenance costs.”
In the coming months, STC plans to implement similar biodiesel conversions of company-controlled fuel supplies throughout the province.
