- NOx reduction/pollution reduction (if specific numbers are known)
- Positive environmental impact
- Community impact
- Student/driver health
- Future outlook
Four awards were given in the following categories:
- Small school district (under 100 buses)
- Large school district (over 100 buses)

Our Student Transportation division has been utilizing propane as an alternative to diesel fuel since the 1980’s, and we currently own and operate the largest propane fleet in Canada. Not only are we proud to receive this recognition, but we are also proud to be the only Canadian company nominated for this multi-national award.
