The Division of Transportation for Fayette County Schools has traded in several buses for more environmentally-friendly ones.
The new buses have a larger exhaust pipe and use ultra low sulfur, which reduces sulfur content in diesel fuel. This switch will ultimately cut back on the large carbon footprint from current school buses.
John Kiser, Director of Transportation, says, "We're excited we have twenty-six of those new buses and we'll be operating those for the first time this year."
While being better for the environment, the new buses are also a little bigger. They will now hold 76 students rather than the previous 71.
