School district to receive propane-powered buses

Typography

The Beaufort County School District will receive 18 new school buses powered by propane. The buses are part of the state’s portion of a settlement agreement with Volkswagen after the car manufacturer admitted to altering devices on cars to cheat emission tests. The new buses will cost half as much to fuel and maintain as the 1988 models they will replace, and they also are better for the environment.
