BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Capital Area Transit System (CATS) could be taking the first steps toward “Going Green.”

Board members set to vote Tuesday night on a measure that would open the doors to considering alternative fuel sources.

CATS would work with the University of New Orleans to determine the best options.

As of 2013, some 35 percent of mass transit buses in the US operate on fuels like compressed natural gas.
