A group of California school districts are getting together to try and get a grant from PG&E, the California Air Resources Board and other groups for the purchase of some new school buses. The Madera, Clovis, Kings Canyon, Visalia, and Fresno districts want to acquire a fleet of compressed natural gas powered plug-in hybrid school buses. They are looking for $3.25 million for the purchase of two Blue Bird buses for each district. The Madera district has also approved an extra $10,000 a year in funding for training, support and data collection for the duration of the hybrid test program.
