Propane-Powered Micro Bird to Begin Taking Orders in July


Blue Bird and Micro Bird by Girardin announced the upcoming release of a new Type A school bus fueled by propane.

The move, which Blue Bird said is an extension of its commitment to affordable green solutions, comes after seeing an increased demand for Micro Bird’s big brother, Blue Bird’s propane-powered Vision Type C school bus.

“Blue Bird wanted to ensure all products lines were offered with a green solution,” said Micro Bird President Steve Girardin.

Although the model will not begin production until late 2010, the company said it is currently taking orders.

The Micro Bird is the second propane-powered Type A school bus coming to market joining Collins Bus.
