Missouri District Adds 10 Propane School Buses, Fueling Station
School Bus Fleet
Independence (Mo.) School District has added 10 propane school buses to its fleet, along with a propane fueling station. The district purchased the propane buses and fueling station using a $20,000 rebate from the Missouri Propane Education and Research Council (MOPERC) and a Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) grant, according to a news release from MOPERC. The rebate is part of the agency’s Clean Bus Replacement Plan, which has committed $1 million to help Missouri school districts transition from diesel to propane buses.
