Clean Diesel: Saf-T-Liner® C2 School Bus

If you’re looking for a school or activity bus that’s environmentally conscious and cost efficient, consider the Thomas Saf-T-Liner® C2 and the many benefits of clean diesel.

Today’s diesel technology is not the diesel of a decade or more ago. Cleaner diesel fuel, advanced engines, and effective emissions control make clean diesel a proven cost-efficient, environmentally responsible option for bus fleets.

Clean diesel’s benefits include:

  • Fewer fueling events 
  • Larger fuel tank options 
  • Enhanced safety with its higher flash point

Driven by tougher EPA emissions standards, today’s clean diesel is composed of an ultra-low sulfur formula, and is estimated to remove 2.6 million tons of nitrogen oxide from the air per year and reduce soot and particulate matter by 110,000 tons per year.

If safety, efficiency, and durability are priorities, Thomas Built Buses’  clean diesel Saf-T-Liner® C2 school or activity bus might be the best option for your organization. One in every three children in the United States rides a Thomas Built school bus, and the Saf-T-Liner® C2 is dependable and safe.
