Creative Bus Sales Opens Its Second Dedicated Alt Fuels Vehicle Conversion Facility

Creative Bus Sales has opened a 30,000 sq ft facility in Elkhart, Indiana that will initially be used to perform alternative fuel conversions on buses, trucks, and vans. The process will take gasoline powered vehicles and convert them to run on propane and compressed natural gas (CNG). The operation will be conducted under the name Green Alternative Systems or GAS. The focus of the business will be to provide conversions to OEM bus manufacturers and dealers across the country.

The new facility is the second completely dedicated alternative fuels vehicle conversion facility to be opened by Creative Bus Sales; the first is based in Chino, California. When running at full capacity the new facility will be able to turn out hundreds of conversions each year.

Creative Bus Sales designs, converts and installs dedicated CNG and Propane fuel systems for buses, vans and autos. All CNG and Propane conversions strictly adhere to NFPA 52 standards and Title 13. Creative Bus Sales is the largest commercial bus dealership in the country, offering products from 12 of the largest school bus and commercial bus manufacturers. Creative Bus Sales has multiple locations throughout the United States.

They should take all of our E450 transit buses and convert them now. They ride around burning lots of fuel in stop and go driving. Add an idle stop system and we could have cleaner air, less imported oil and create local jobs.

Excellent. Creative Bus is creating new jobs in the alternative energy field. AKA as GAS that uses no gasoline.

From here we need more hybrid EV buses. NG is cleaner, yes, but any ICE is a freaking NOISE maker. Part of the disturbing urban landscape is noise pollution. ICE Buses in Seattle make a racket. The overhead powered buses are nearly silent.

Of course lubing the brakes would also help.

Ours mostly run seniors from the 55+ development to the senior center, which is a good use for them. They put on lots of miles and all of it is stop light stuff. Just the lower fuel bill would be an incentive.

Some 30+ years ago, I had 15 of our vehicles converted to CNG. Every thing went OK till the following winter. All those CNG vehicles would not start on very cold mornings. Since we did not have enough garage space, we were forced to have the CNG kit removed.

Will recent vehicles perform better on CNG in very cold weather?
