Students ride 'green' bus to school

April 22, 2009 (OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill.) The first hybrid school bus in the state transported students to Arcadia School Wednesday morning. It's only one of 25 hybrid school buses in the country.

Students who didn't get to ride the new bus were able to take a tour once it arrived at school.

The bus is powered by an electric battery and a diesel engine. It's quieter, cleaner and twice as fuel efficient as a regular school bus.
