We hear from Assistant Superintendent of Business and District Operations Dr. Joseph Centamore that the District's first environmentally friendly propane-fueled bus embarked on its maiden voyage last week. This begins the District's plan to gradually replace large diesel-fueled buses with these cleaner and more economically efficient propane models. While a transition of this magnitude will surely take some time, we look forward to welcoming a second, new generation bus to the fleet in the weeks to come.
