With the new school year approaching, Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Co Ltd, the largest school bus maker in China by sales volume, has seen a significant increase in orders in August, according to financial news website

"Orders for school buses received in August reached more than 1,000, which was a dramatic increase," Yu Li, secretary of the board of directors of the company was quoted as saying on Aug 15 by the website.

Yutong sold 2,231 school buses in the first quarter, with a market share of 34.4 percent.
