Electric School Buses: Stories from the Field
Parents, caregivers and advocates are leading the effort for electric school buses in their communities – and seeing results. In the first webinar of an exciting new series, we’ll learn from those who are working every day to bring the benefits of electric school buses to their schools. Join us to hear more about what motivates these leaders, the obstacles they faced, their path to solutions and other lessons to inform and inspire your own electric school journey.
About the “Electric School Buses: Getting on Board” series:
Diesel school buses make up the vast majority of the U.S. school bus fleet, emitting harmful pollutants at rates up to 12x higher than ambient levels. Electric school buses offer a clean alternative, with no tailpipe emissions and air quality benefits that support students’ health and cognitive development.
As the EPA launches its Clean School Bus Program, providing up to $5 billion in funding for electric school buses, this is the moment to bring the benefits of electric school buses to the communities most harmed by air pollution. Join us for “Electric School Buses: Getting on Board,” a webinar series in which we’ll explore the electric school bus adoption process and how you can help bring electric school buses to your community.
Future webinars throughout 2022 will address topics such as the electric school bus roadmap, funding and financing, charging, vehicle-to-grid technologies, and state and local policy – all centered on an equitable approach to the electric school bus transition. The series is being hosted by the Alliance for Electric School Buses and WRI's Electric School Bus Initiative.
