Jobs to Move America (JMA) unveiled a new report about electric school bus technology and deployment, including policy recommendations for how New York can use a transition to electric school bus fleets to improve air quality for children while building a just recovery for working families. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, more than two million New York students relied on the state’s 46,000 school buses — the vast majority of which are major producers of toxic emissions and greenhouse gasses. The report argues that by transitioning swiftly to electric school buses, New York can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create cleaner air for kids and communities, and support good job creation.
