Willmar bus going 'green'


WILLMAR -- When school starts on Sept. 7, Willmar students will be riding big yellow buses that have gone "green" under the hood.

Fifteen of Willmar Bus Service's diesel school buses were retrofitted with filters and catalyst mufflers that will reduce their emissions by 50 percent.

"We felt it was the right thing to do," said owner Ken Inselmann. "It's a better quality of air for everyone, and especially for young kids."
