TBB reaches 1,000 deliveries of its Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley school bus

The bus was delivered to Meriwether County School System (MCSS) in Georgia as part of a larger order.

Thomas Built Buses (TBB) revealed it has reached 1,000 deliveries of its Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley battery-electric school bus. The bus was delivered to Meriwether County School System (MCSS) in Georgia as part of a larger order. In total, the district received eight Jouley electric school buses, with full funding provided through the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean School Bus (CSB) grant program, the company said. The new buses, which are going to Manchester High and Greenville Middle High, will serve as replacements for some of the district’s current fleet of 46 diesel school buses.

“Being a part of this milestone is an honor,” Robert Griffin, superintendent for MCSS, said. “Jouley was a natural choice because of the available long-term battery energy, access to fast DC charging and safety-first construction.”

As of this release, TBB said all eight of the electric school buses from Thomas Built have been delivered to the district by dealer Peach State Truck Center. The district has applied for four more through CSB.

“We’re proud to support MCSS in pioneering the electrification of school buses in the state of Georgia,” Gary Carlisle, a representative for Peach State Truck Centers, said. “Their new Jouley fleet will provide MCSS with reduced maintenance costs and reduced fuel costs while showcasing our commitment to a cleaner, more sustainable future for our students and our community.
