School districts in North Texas are operating more Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Compress Natural Gas (CNG) buses than any other region in Texas! NCTCOG has helped these alternative fuel bus fleets grow by providing grant funds in order to help local independent school districts obtain funds for the purchase of CNG & LPG buses, as well as hybrid-electric buses.
