New Biodiesel Bus is Here!

The bus is finished and on the road! The newly painted bus made its maiden voyage transporting students from the River Campus at U of R to the Art Awake festival downtown on April 20, 2013. This was the same day as the U of R Earth Day Festival. It seemed poetic that the original bus would make its first run on Earth Day 2009 and the new one to start on Earth Day 2013.

Sadly, our old bus has reached retirement. Thankfully, the University of Rochester and First Transit are providing a replacement for us in the form of another old school bus that will run between the Eastman School of Music and River Campus.So keep an eye out for it in a few months!

However, this bus will likely only last a few years so we want to start planning ahead for our next poster vehicle. Any suggestions?
