Madison County schools are taking a step to help the environment.
All of the county's yellow school buses are going green. School officials have started running the buses on biodiesel fuel. The environmentally friendly fuel will release fewer toxins into the air and will be healthier for kids to breathe.
“That sooty black smoke that you see come out of the exhaust pipe will frequently be completely eliminated by the use of the biodiesel fuel,” said Madison County Supervisor Bob Miller.
The biodiesel fuel is also expected to reduce maintenance costs to the bus fleet.
