Pulaski County Schools set to switch to propane
The Pulaski County Special School District in Arkansas is taking 20 of its older diesel school buses off the road and replacing them with new propane models. The district will receive a reimbursement of $98,000 per propane school bus (up to 20 buses) from the state’s Division of Environmental Quality. Eligible expenses include the purchase price of the new buses, delivery costs of the new buses, the cost to scrap and dispose of the buses being replaced, and taxes, if applicable. The district originally started with four propane buses, adding two each year in 2019 and 2020.
