(KSL News) Utah school districts can now apply for help in making their buses greener.
Districts can get up to $2.3 million in grant money to retrofit buses with pollution control devices. The buses have to be built between 1993 and 2006 and run on diesel.
The Department of Air Quality says the upgrade will reduce pollutants and clean up the air the children breathe on the bus.
Work on retrofitting the buses is expected to start early next year.
