Lafayette to buy 8 propane buses
from The Advocate
By early spring, some students in the Lafayette Parish School System of Louisiana will be riding to and from school on more cost-efficient, environmentally friendly buses powered by propane rather than diesel. The School Board approved the purchase of eight new propane-fueled buses at a cost of about $710,000. District transportation director Bill Samec said the buses cost about $88,000 each, which is about $6,000 more than a diesel-powered bus, but the expected annual fuel cost savings makes the extra up-front costs worth it.
