The 17-seat minibuses, worth £500,000 at showroom prices, were chosen because of the running cost advantage of LPG over diesel. The council expects to save £15,000 a year on fuel costs if the buses are run on LPG for 75% of the time. Calor Scotland has also supported the move with a donation of £1,700. The vehicles were provided by Lex Commercials Glasgow and the livery includes 10 designs chosen from 1,600 entries by school children.
