“Today marks the next phase of GreenPower’s entry into the New York school bus market,” said Michael Perez, GreenPower’s Vice President of School Bus, Contracts and Grants. “We have worked closely with Leonard Bus Sales to be on the state contract, meet the state specs and be listed by NYSERDA. Another Nano BEAST purpose-built school bus will serve as a demo vehicle that Leonard Bus Sales will use to introduce schools throughout the state to GreenPower’s offerings of all-electric school buses. New York accounts for about 10% of the school bus fleet nationwide with approximately 50,000 school buses transporting 2.3 million children. Leonard Bus Sales is a leading distributor of IC BusTM brand buses in Upstate New York, distributes Trans Tech Type-A school buses and GreenPower buses throughout New York.
