Prototype hybrid school buses made by IC Corp. were on display at Cardinals Stadium in Arizona this past Wednesday for hundreds of school district employees. Why were the buses in Arizona? Maybe it was to drum up a sale or two. While 19 of the clean buses (compared to standard school buses, emissions are about 90 percent lower and gas mileage is between 35 and 55 percent higher on the hybrids) will be delivered to school systems across the U.S. next year, none have so far been ordered in Arizona. IC Corp. also makes hybrid-less school buses, seen above.
