Hot buses! What percentage of ArkLaTex school buses have AC?

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

With the start of the school year being one of the hottest times of the year, it makes for a toasty bus ride back from school for many ArkLaTex kids. Many buses still don't have air conditioning, which makes cooling down tough in the 100 degree weather.

The following list shows the percentage of buses which have air conditioning in various counties and parishes:

Caddo - 42%
Bossier - 15%
Webster - 5%
DeSoto - 100%
Red River - 91%
Bienville - 93%

Harrison - 66%
Bowie - 73%

Lafayette - 13%

As older buses are taken out of the rotation, many school boards plan on replacing them with new, air conditioned buses.
