RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Washoe County School District has won a federal grant to help replace polluting school buses in the Reno-Sparks area.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday the district will receive $110,000 to replace five older buses that burn diesel fuel.
It's among 76 new buses EPA hopes will be replaced as part of a larger $755,000 grant to be shared with school districts in California, Oregon and Washington.
EPA officials say the new buses are 90 percent cleaner.
