Ferry to Get Three Propane Buses
The Times Leader
The Martins Ferry City School District has upgraded its bus fleet with three new vehicles that should help the system realize savings in maintenance and other costs by using propane rather than diesel fuel. The purchases were made in conjunction with the Qualified Zone Academy Bond Loan awarded to the school district last year. Superintendent Dirk Fitch noted that as part of the QZAB Loan, public school districts could purchase new or refit older systems, including transportation vehicles, with higher efficiency and lower emissions units.
