SEYMOUR – All-Star Transportation completed a key project today as it continues with its efforts to convert its fleet of diesel vehicles to cleaner, more-efficient propane.
A new, 18,000-gallon propane tank was installed at the company’s Seymour terminal. Once fully operational, the new tank will provide fuel for the 21 school buses that serve Seymour public schools and three others that transport Region 16 students in Beacon Falls.
The effort to install the new tank has been ongoing for months. A concrete platform and piping were installed much earlier while the tank was under construction. Once it was completed, the tank was transported from North Carolina.
The new tank was just the latest in improvements made at the Seymour terminal. Over the summer, the terminal received a new coat of paint, a new floor was installed in the shop break room, and the front office was fully renovated to create new office space and space for staff to gather. Work at the Seymour terminal is part of All-Star’s long-term plans to modernize and upgrade its terminals.
In addition to Seymour, All-Star operates propane-fueled buses at its terminals in New Milford and Newtown.
