Blue Bird’s clean, green electric school bus technology expands with Cummins partnership, saving schools money and cutting emissions

MACON, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Across North America, some students going back to school this fall will ride electric school buses. More than 100 electric school buses, powered by a Cummins fully electric drivetrain, have been ordered to date from Blue Bird Corporation, a school bus manufacturer highly focused on alternative fuel technologies.


Blue Bird electric buses are already operating in California, North Dakota and Washington. Additional buses on order will transport students in California, Colorado, New Jersey, New York and Quebec later this year or in 2020.

“The amount of interest has been outstanding; people are very excited about a 100-percent electric-powered school bus,” said Phil Horlock, president and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation. “The nation is increasingly influenced in electric vehicle transportation in general, and we anticipate rapid growth of electric school buses as more districts are educated on the zero-emissions and low-maintenance benefits they bring to their local communities.”

Blue Bird has been working with electric technology in school buses since 1994, and recently partnered with the Cummins Electrified Power business segment. Cummins produces the all-electric drivetrains that power Blue Bird’s Vision Electric and All American Electric buses. The partnership brings over 30 years of electric drivetrain experience to this fast-growing segment, and almost 200 combined years of leadership in customer support. Over the next three years, Cummins is investing $500 million in electrification to bring dependable, high quality, fully electric and hybrid solutions to market across a wide range of applications.

“Cummins and Blue Bird are committed to supporting customers and ensuring that we are safely transporting our children and improving air quality for communities,” said Julie Furber, vice president of electrified power at Cummins Inc. “Schools can count on Cummins to deliver the same level of support and service network for these electric buses that we’ve always delivered through our more than 200 wholly-owned branch locations and 3,200 service technicians in North America.”

The innovative Blue Bird electric bus delivers abundant benefits to students, drivers and taxpayers. The buses produce zero emissions, improve air quality and require less maintenance, saving districts time and money. The buses are capable of up to 120 miles of range and can be recharged in approximately eight hours using a standard SAE J1772 Level 2 charger, making overnight charging convenient.

SAN DIEGO & ANDOVER, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$CASA #classaction–Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP announces that a purchaser of Casa Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CASA) has filed a class action complaint against the company for alleged violations of the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to its December 2017 initial public offering (“IPO”). Casa Systems provides customers with software-centric broadband connectivity in North America, Latin America, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Casa Systems, Inc. (CASA) Accused of Misleading Investors in IPO

According to the complaint, Casa Systems held its initial public offering in December 2017 offering 6,000,000 common shares at $13 per share. Its registration documents stated that its core CCAP products and new technology initiatives would allow for a compelling market opportunity and touted the fact that these initiatives would prompt Casa Systems to experience continued rapid growth. However, these documents were false and misleading as Casa Systems failed to disclose material information about the state of its customers’ spending. In reality, Casa Systems knew its key customers’ spending had entered a “digestion” period that curtailed any new product purchases. On August 14, 2018, Casa Systems announced disappointing financial results and cut its revenue guidance for the year by $50 million. On this news, Casa Systems stock declined from $15.60 to $12.08, a drop of almost 23%. Since then, Casa Systems has continued to have disappointing financial results and the stock now trades at just $6.56, a decline of 49% from its IPO price.
