Metro School Systems Turn to New Fuels for Buses
With the school budget year just beginning for most systems, a major cost is transportation. With rising fuel costs and diesel engine mechanics harder to find, many districts have begun looking at vehicles that use alternative fuels such as gasoline and propane. Not only do these engines burn cleaner, they are easier to maintain and the fuel costs less. The cherry on top may be state and federal grants, as well as fuel companies’ incentives to switch from diesel.
