ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Gates-Chili is becoming one of the first school districts in upstate New York to add all-electric school buses.

The Gates-Chili School District cut the ribbon on two new electric buses on Tuesday morning. The district adopted a measure to purchase the buses after receiving a voucher from NY State to promote green transportation.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony included a look under the hood at the new buses that don’t run on fossil fuels.
