INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 8, 2016) – Students in Wayne Township will soon be riding in new school buses.
The school district is replacing 20 diesel-fueled buses with 20 new, propane-fueled buses in an effort to be more environmentally friendly and save money. Wayne Township director of transportation Janet Petrisin said they estimate $700,000 in savings over the next 12 years. A grant from the Indiana Office of Energy Development helped offset the cost of the new buses.
To celebrate the addition to their school bus fleet, the district is having a “parade of buses”at noon Friday. The buses will go from MacAllister Machinery to the MSD Wayne Township Transportation Center.
