The Biden administration committed $5 billion to the production of zero-emission school buses with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The influx of federal funding provides school districts the opportunity to make the commitment to switch from diesel buses to a cleaner option to transport students.
As school districts begin to make the transition, we must tackle how we invest in communities typically hit first and worst by pollution. It is critical we look at operations in rural districts where buses drive longer routes and in locations that are faced with weather challenges.
This webinar will bring together speakers employing electric school buses while navigating circumstances that are often identified as obstacles, such as rural locations, lack of resources and inclement weather.
