New Propane Fleet to Debut

The Waterbury Public School district joined other environmentally-conscious school districts from around the country by switching to propane-fueled school busses to transport most students this year. The 149 new yellow Durham Transportation busses are distinguishable by white roofs and extended engine compartments, as well as “propane” markers in several locations on the sides and back of the bus. They have already begun travelling around the city of Waterbury, as drivers familiarize themselves with the busses and their new school bus routes.
