FUN FACT FRIDAY: CNG Buses Bring Big Savings In Fuel Costs

Jordan School District has the largest fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG) school buses in the State and that is adding up to big savings for taxpayers in fuel costs.

  • Jordan School District CNG bus parked next to a filling station. The District has a total of 123 CNG school buses
  • We pay 67 cents a gallon in natural gas fuel costs
  • We receive an alternative fuel rebate of 50 cents a gallon
  • That means WE PAY 17 CENTS A GALLON FOR FUEL in our CNG school buses

The District is saving taxpayers $6,000 per CNG school bus in fuel costs each year which totals about $700,000 a year in savings!
