The West Coast Collaborative strives to support fleets in finding resources to transition to zero-emissions options, to train their staff, and to maintain their current equipment. Below are links to trainings for fleet operators, as well as information on the general care and maintenance of diesel vehicles, and after-treatment devices.

Every manufacturer has different configurations of their systems, so please contact your equipment manufacturer dealer or service center to ensure proper service of the emissions control systems regardless of warranty status.

Diesel Particulate Filter Maintenance for School Buses

School bus duty cycles have a great effect on Diesel Particulate Filer (DPF) maintenance intervals. Avoiding unplanned downtime requires setting specific feature parameter settings based on your duty cycle, routine regenerations, and usage of quality DPFs.
