Saf-T-Liner® C2 Propane School Bus

The propane-fueled Saf-T-Liner® C2 by Thomas Built Buses is fuel-efficient, cost-efficient, and low in emissions. Let us help you determine if a propane engine is best for your fleet.

Propane autogas engines are gaining in popularity as an affordable alternative fuel option. With savings in fuel and efficiency, and low emissions, propane autogas engines require less service and maintenance, allowing school bus fleets to operate more economically and sustainably. 

Thomas Built’s Saf-T-Liner® C2 propane school/activity bus is equipped with a Driveforce 8.8L or 8.0L LPG autogas engine that delivers power and performance. A propane autogas engine is a safe and environmentally-conscious fuel alternative.

The Saf-T-Liner® C2 propane equipped with the 8.8L LPG engine can be paired with the Allison 2500 or 2550 PTS transmission. Customers also may choose a 70- or 100-gallon fuel tank configuration. The propane-fueled Saf-T-Liner C2 is California Air Research Board-certified in all 50 states.
