Missouri School District Finds Success with Propane School Buses
The St. Louis suburban school district set out to reduce bus emissions and costs, which led to the adoption of propane vehicles. It became the first district in the state to add propane to its fleet, according to a case study by the Missouri Propane Education and Research Council (MPERC). The district consists of 26 school sites and transports 12,000 students each day via 174 school buses. Each one travels about 10,000 miles annually.
