DART put some of its new buses into service Monday morning. The 40-foot buses are fueled by compressed natural gas. It marks the latest phase of DART's clean transit fuels program.
A total of 459 buses have been ordered at a price of $210 million. They come with lower floors and an entry ramp that is not as steep as the older ones. The buses also have more leg room and security cameras.
The first buses to roll out are being used for Route 987 that operates between downtown Garland and Royal Lane stations. The transit agency expects to complete the conversion by 2015.
