The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles will approve up to three participants for a pilot program to operate Type II school buses that are retrofitted with an auxiliary fuel tank to enable the use of biodiesel, waste vegetable oil, or straight vegetable oil. Eligible buses must pass inspection in accordance with the state School Bus Periodic Inspection Manual and comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. A Type II school bus is defined as a school bus with a manufacturer's rated seating capacity of more than 10 and fewer than 16 passengers, including the operator. The pilot program will expire on September 1, 2015. (Reference Vermont Statutes Title 23, Chapter 1, Section 4)
