Aggie Buses Have a New Spirit

By  | 

Texas A&M students have new rides to choose from on campus.

The university unveiled new campus buses and a new name for the fleet: Aggie Spirit.

In all, 25 new buses have been purchased and are on the routes, while 18 buses have been retired.

The new vehicles feature better fuel efficiency and transmissions for a smoother ride, and are also built for the engines to be more easily repaired.

"We actually started talking about a capital replacement plan five years ago when I arrived here, and we've been working towards this for the last five years," said Rod Weis, who heads up transportation services for the university.
