LEE's SUMMIT, Mo. -- The Lee's Summit School District is going clean and green with their new fleet of CNG buses. The conversion from diesel fuel to compressed natural gas will not only save millions of dollars but it will help the environment.

The fuel and maintenance savings by going to CNG will be used to keep the district up with the latest in technology.

It's estimated that CNG will reduce costs by about 2.9 million dollars annually.

The superintendent says it is the largest bus conversion in the country with as many as 106 buses rolling into the district this coming school year.

The district will show off two of their new CNG buses on Thursday during a press conference.
