Twin Falls considers propane bus proposal
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- The Twin Falls School District is considering a proposal a proposal to fuel its bus fleet with propane.
Western States Bus Services is proposing to replace 10 diesel buses with propone ones and to phase more in over the next two to three years.
The bus company estimates the district could save $17,240 in fuel costs each year. Western States Bus Services' manager Michele Dameron says the cleaner-running buses also would be quieter and beneficial for children with asthma.
The Times-News reports the school board will take action on the proposal next month.
The Buhl and Filer school districts already use propane-fueled school buses.
