Any county that uses compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, or electricity for the operation of any portion of its school bus fleet is eligible for a 10% reimbursement from the West Virginia Department of Education to help offset maintenance, operation, and other costs. A county is eligible for an additional 5% reimbursement for the portion of the school bus system that is manufactured within the state of West Virginia. Any county qualifying for this allowance must submit a plan that includes the future use of the CNG, propane, or electric school buses to the Department of Education.
