Eight Butte County School Buses To Be Retired, Replaced

Aug 15, 2017

Eight vintage Butte County school buses will be retired by the end of the year in an effort to improve air quality, officials said.  

According to county air regulators, the buses can’t be retrofitted to us particulate-capturing filters.    

Grant money, available through a state clean air program, will pay out nearly $85,000 per bus to retire and replace them. 

The buses are all owned by the Chico Unified School District.
