Creative Bus Sales signs alt-fuel conversion deal

Posted on October 29, 2010

Alternative Fuel Converter Creative Bus Sales (CBS) and its affiliate Green Alternative Systems (GAS) entered into an exclusive purchasing agreement with clean energy company BAF.

Under the agreement, BAF granted CBS and GAS exclusive rights to purchase and install their BAF CalComp Systems for natural gas. This agreement was entered into to ensure the highest quality CNG upfits are provided to the transit bus market. Given the complexity, exacting contractual and testing requirements associated with publicly funded transit bus procurements.

The agreement gives transit agencies, bus manufacturers and bus dealers countrywide the choice to have their upfits performed at Creative's Chino, Calif. conversion facility; Green Alternative Systems Elkhart, Ind. facility; or BAF's Dallas location.

BAF will continue to offer turnkey CNG upfits from their Dallas facility for all markets including transit.
