Chelan School District happy with hybrid bus
The only drawback is the price tag: $212,000. The district had received a grant from the state Department of Ecology as well as local agencies and private parties to help buy this one. Such a cost wouldn't be easily feasible in the future. Logan did mention he'd been told prices could drop dramatically to $140,000 if 100 or more were ordered. Moving the decimal point a few places tells me that hybrid buses could be affordable if an initial $21.2 million were invested in our childrens school transportation. Doesn't seem like so much to me.
