All departments need to get ‘green’ vehicles

Is West Virginia going green?

I used to be a school bus operator. I had a four-wheel drive bus that was still in good condition. What did the school system do? They took it off the road and purchased me a fuel-guzzling, two-wheel drive bus that was too large for road conditions.

It does not make much sense for schools to buy huge buses and haul less students. Even with tire chains I was barely able to make my routes many times.

Get a huge bus on the road with rowdy kids and see how easy it is to operate. I think it is time for all state departments to go green and buy smaller vehicles.
