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.

      That's my home town! I live in Exeter, just 10 miles east of Visalia. Hope they get those busses soon for the kids' sake. When they do I'll be sure to take some photos for you ;)

      Laughing at us? Aw, Merc, you're jealous!

      Just because we've got money, beauty, brains, a wonderful climate and abundant resources, that is no reason for sour grapes, Merc. (oh, we've got great wine, too.)
