Hoekstra Transportation – The leader in clean diesel school bus transportation
At Hoekstra Transportation, we take great pride in the products we sell, and that is why we only sell clean, ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) school buses. The technological improvements in diesel-powered engines have come a long way since 1988, reducing particulate matter (PM) and hydrocarbon (EC) emissions. With near-zero emissions, the choice to move to the new high-tech diesel solution is an easy one. It is a clear leader through the combination of fuel safety, energy efficiency, reliability, durability, operational cost, and acquisition cost.
While 94% of school buses in the United States are diesel-powered, only about 46% rely on the near-zero emission diesel engine technology. With around 550,000 school buses in America, that means that about 275,000 buses could reduce emissions by upgrading to the new technological advancements brought to you by Hoekstra Transportation. In addition to lower emissions, new school buses are also safer, with enhanced driver visibility and advanced warning systems, ensuring that children make it to school this fall safely and on time.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s “Clean School Bus USA” initiative is also encouraging bus owners to retrofit old school buses with newer diesel engines. Contact Hoekstra Transportation today with any questions you may have about this process and the economic incentives available to you for upgrading to a cleaner, safer school bus while saving money on operation.
