BARRE, Vt. (AP) - The Barre Town School District will be getting $60,000 from the Environmental Protection Agency for three new school buses that emit less pollution.

The school district will receive the rebates through the EPA’s Diesel Emissions Reduction Act funding.

The EPA says the district is among five fleets in New England and 76 in 30 states to receive the rebates, estimated at more than $3 million.

The funding is expected to pay for 210 buses that are more than 90 percent cleaner than the old diesel buses they replaced.
