School Bus Electrification: State Policy Options
June 2nd: 1:00 PM MT
The United States’ 480,000 school buses account for 80% of all buses nationwide. Only 1% of school buses are electrified. According to the World Resources Institute, electrifying the entire fleet of U.S. school buses would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 8 megatons per year and reduce emissions from all U.S. buses by 35% per year. The IIJA provided $2.5 billion in funding specifically for zero-emission electric school buses and an additional $2.5 billion for all types of low-emission buses. This webinar for state legislators and legislative staff will focus on policy options and funding opportunities for school bus electrification.
