On Radioactivity Friday, we talk with two USF students who wants their school to switch to using electric buses on campus. The current fleet of buses that make up the Bullrunner buss system on the school’s Tampa campus is comprised entirely of vehicles that run on diesel and biodiesel. Today we are joined by Hollyn Hartlep, with the Student Environmental Association (SEA) at USF, and Lauren Jones, president of Environmental Policy Advocates at USF,  who wants the university to use its Student Green Energy Fund supplement the upfront costs to switch to environmentally friendly electric buses. Next Wednesday on the USF Tampa Campus there will be an electric bus demonstration and presentation to raise student awareness of sustainable energy technology.
