In addition to a fleet of 28 new air-conditioned school buses, the district’s transportation department has added two new electric (EV) buses. 

GSD Transportation Director Benji Britt said the new EV buses arrived free of charge to the district through a federal EPA grant. 

The EV buses have been employed to run short routes in town and have performed exceedingly well.The daily energy expenses are estimated to be about $5 a day less than traditional diesel fuel, and if those savings hold true, that could add up over time.
