Thomas Built Buses, along with Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation, announced the launch of the Saf-T-Liner C2 CNG school bus.  According to the company, this will be the first compressed natural gas engine in the industry on the popular Type C product.

“Today we are proud to open orders for the new Saf-T-Liner C2 CNG. Since we launched the Saf-T-Liner HDX CNG 20 years ago, we’ve seen how efficient and economical CNG can be for our customers,” said Caley Edgerly, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses. “We are pleased to take our ever-popular C2 model and upfit it to be used with compressed natural gas for the many school districts which are looking for a lower-priced, cleaner and increasingly abundant fuel supply. The Saf-T-Liner C2 CNG is a great addition to our family of alternative-fueled buses.”

Thomas Built’s green vehicle lineup also includes the Saf-T-Liner C2 Propane, Saf-T-Liner HDX CNG, Minotour Propane and Minotour CNG.
