HELOTES, Texas - A San Antonio-area school district says
it's the first in the nation to buy propane-fueled school buses.
The Northside Independent School District showed off 16 classic
yellow Blue Bird propane school buses Monday morning, saying the
vehicles are cleaner and cheaper to run than traditional diesel
While districts across the U.S. converted school buses from
diesel-run to propane for several years, the new buses are the
first to come off the production line propane-ready, says Albert
Burleigh (BUR'-lee), a regional sales manager for Fort Valley,
Ga.-based Blue Bird Corp.
The district has about 85,000 students, and up to 45,000 are
expected to ride the bus to and from school next year.
