Neosho New Propane School Buses
Six propane buses arrived in Neosho today. School district officials say they were researching ways to cut the fuel costs on their diesel buses and decided to get 18 propane buses. The district got the fleet through a three-year lease purchase. The assistant superintendent estimates the district will save $2,500 to $5,000 per bus a year with the new propane vehicles. The propane buses also have a quieter engine, allowing drivers to hear children all the way in the back of the bus.
