New York Bus Sales has opened its newly constructed $6 million facility in the town of Batavia
The 20,000-square-foot facility is intended to support school districts and bus operators across Genesee County and the Western New York and Finger Lakes regions to convert their fleets from diesel fuel to all-electric, which is required by legislation in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act by 2035.
The new facility will create 24 new jobs in Genesee County. New York Bus Sales is seeking candidates for service and automotive tech roles and will have the opportunity to hire from the workforce pool from Genesee County and surrounding regions, including students participating in the Genesee Valley BOCES Deisel Tech Cohort program.
Based in Chittenango, Madison County, New York Bus Sales is the largest Blue Bird school bus dealer in the state.
The Batavia facility will service customers, including school districts, to help transition their bus fleets from diesel fuel engines to all-electric bus fleets.
“Our new location in Genesee County allows us to serve the Western New York and Finger Lakes school districts as we work together with New York State to deliver clean energy solutions to local students and families,” said John Johnston, operations manager of New York Bus Sales.
New York Bus Sales worked with the Genesee County Economic Development Center to find a strategic location that fit their facility requirements on Saile Drive in Batavia and National Grid assisted in the installation of charging stations and technology as part of the company’s Electric Vehicle Make-Ready Program. This program provides funding for up to 100 percent of the electric infrastructure costs for approved projects.
