The Murrieta Valley Unified School District in California has purchased 10 compressed natural gas (CNG) buses to add to its fleet of 51 diesel-powered vehicles.
According to a Press-Enterprise report, the district bought the vehicles from Colton, Calif.-based A-Z Bus Sales Inc. and is also constructing refueling stations at the district's fleet yard. San Clemente, Calif.-based Go Natural Gas is building the facilities, which should be completed within the coming weeks. Meanwhile, the buses will refuel at a nearby CNG station in Temecula.
At a ceremony Aug. 8, the district's superintendent said she was delighted. “In the long term, we're putting money back in the classroom by doing projects like this.”
