SOUTHLAND Transportation operates school, charter, commuter and specialized transportation buses throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan. It was the first school bus company in Canada to have its training program nationally recognized and certified by the Motor Carrier Passenger Council of Canada and has won the annual Consumer Choice Award since 2008.
Recognizing that their propane-fuelled buses were outperforming their diesel counterparts, required less maintenance and were better for the environment, SOUTHLAND Transportation invested in an additional 101 Blue Bird Propane Vision buses.
When Joe Russo, Director of Sales, at Superior Propane heard about SOUTHLAND’s purchase, he knew exactly how Superior could make a smart decision even smarter.
Without skipping a beat, he booked a meeting with Tom Jezersek and walked him through the simple transition to make all of their propane needs a one-stop shop.
A Superior Propane dispenser was soon installed, saving drivers precious time and SOUTHLAND maintenance and fuel costs.
“It was a triple win,” said Tom Jezersek. “Our drivers, shop mechanics and passengers all benefited.”
“Our Superior Propane fuelled buses start easily in the cold temperatures which means we can get our passengers reliably to and from school in all temperatures.”
“Now we have a yard and a tank, and our drivers don’t need to drive out of their way after their run to fill up. [...] It was a triple win. Our drivers, shop mechanics and passengers all benefited.”
