N.Y. School District Getting Two Propane Autogas Buses


New York State's Bloomfield Central School District is adding two Blue Bird propane autogas buses to its fleet of school buses.

According to the Brighton-Pittsford Post, each bus will cost around $7,500 more than a $105,000 diesel bus, but the district expects to save $30,000 in fuel costs per year.

The new buses will be funded under a grant from the district, as applied for by the district's head bus driver, who expects to get 5,000 miles per oil change, as opposed to 3,000 miles for a diesel bus.

The grant is part of the Bloomfield Central School District's initiative to switch to renewable energy.
