The era of the electric school bus has begun. Vehicles are now available that can handle a typical school bus route, and there are a wide range of incentives for both buses and charging infrastructure. Many districts in Southern California have been awarded buses through Prop 39, and are now needing to plan and install the charging stations that will service them.
The California Air Resources Board and local air quality districts have set their sights on diesel vehicles. Replacing them is critical for the health of Californians as well as to forward state goals for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.
This means that the pressure to replace diesel buses won’t go away. Fortunately, neither will programs that can help your district move in this direction.
