TSC buys more eco-friendly buses

May 11, 2012

The Tippecanoe School Corporation is promoting cleaner transportation.

The district purchased five alternative fuel buses that use the latest propane technology, including a liquid propane autogas fuel system.

TSC Transportation Director Kevin NeafieĀ  says the long term cost savings is the biggest advantage of the new vehicles.

Currently, propane powered vehicles cost about two dollars less per gallon to fill up than those requiring diesel.
