2 Area Schools To Recieve New Buses

Two local schools will be receiving new school buses from the EPA.

The 2014 School Bus Replacement Rebate Program Recipients included High Plains Community Schools and Wahoo Public Schools. The EPA announced more than $3 million in rebates to replace 210 older diesel school buses with new buses that are more than 90 percent cleaner.

Seventy-six school bus fleets in 30 states will receive rebates through EPA’s Diesel Emissions Reduction Act funding to replace school buses.
