Westside : LAX Uses Grant for Clean-Burning Buses

The South Coast Air Quality Management District awarded $600,000 to the Los Angeles Department of Airports to help buy 10 new buses powered by liquid natural gas for travelers at Los Angeles International Airport.

LNG buses, as they are known, create less pollution than diesel or natural-gas-powered vehicles. The airport already operates 14 of these clean-burning buses, and officials plan to buy enough multi-passenger LNG vehicles to replace the airport's entire bus fleet--50 in all.

The AQMD's grant program is part of a larger effort to help reduce air emissions in Southern California.
