The Lafayette Parish School System has received eight new propane-fueled buses.
The new buses will cost $4,000 per year, while a diesel-powered bus costs approximately $8,400. Transportation Director Bill Samec says the buses will pollute less than diesel and will cost less to maintain.
The buses are the first alternative-fuel buses in the state purchased by a school district.
