School transportation officials in West Virginia now have another alternative-fuel option at thier disposal - propane autogas. The state Board of Education this week approved a waiver of Policy 4334: Minimum Requirements for Design and Equipment of School Buses in favor of adding propane as an alternative fuel source for the state's school buses.
Ben Shew, the executive director of the state DOE's Office of School Transportation that oversees the annual school bus bid, said some counties have already expressed interest in propane.
