Retrofitting coming to school buses in Tuscola, Mich.

Following EPA grants for retrofitting buses in Detroit and Fort Wayne, the Tuscola Intermediate School District in Caro, Michigan will receive $50,000 to retrofit their buses and buy biodiesel. Three nearby school districts (Cass City Public Schools, Cass City; Vassar Public Schools, Vassar; and Millington Community Schools, Millington) will also get to use some of the grant money for their own buses. A total of 75 buses will be affected, but only 24 will get diesel oxidation catalysts (the rest get biodiesel).
Like the Detroit and Fort Wayne grants, Tuscola is getting the money as part of the EPA's Clean School Bus USA program.
