According to the district the partnership will reduce the environmental impact of bus transportation by utilizing a new fleet of propane buses and allowing for the use of board-owned electric buses.  

The district says they are working with Diversified Transportation on a smooth transition and implementation of the service, and families can expect to receive further information about any changes in the coming months.
