Propane School Buses Give East Stroudsburg Power To Save
EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. -- One school district in the Poconos is helping to keep the Poconos green with more environmentally-friendly school buses. Propane powered buses are a little more expensive than their diesel counterparts, but they save big on emissions and money in the future. It doesn't sound like your typical school bus because this bus runs on propane. Thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the East Stroudsburg Area School District added 49 more propane-powered buses to its fleet. Now 101 of the 122 buses in the district run on propane.
