- New tonight at 5:00, the West Grand School District is showing off a new electric school bus. We traveled to Kremmling to check it out. The superintendent says you immediately notice one thing when taking a ride.

DARRIN PEPPARD: It's unbelievably quiet. When you're inside the bus you're used to hearing that rattle and shake from the diesel bus, especially as it accelerates. And there's just almost no sound to the electric bus.

- Well, just wait till there's some kids on there, right?

- A little change.

- Well, this is one of two such buses here in Colorado. And they cost about $400,000.
