Three new school buses for Granbury ISD will have seat belts for students. The school board approved the purchase of two 77-passenger regular buses and one 56-passenger special education bus for a total cost of $318,411. State law requires seat belts on all buses that are model year 2018 or later unless the board determines it is not allowable under the district budget. The seat belt cost totals about $17,500 with $6,800 apiece for the regular buses and $4,000 for the special education bus.
