Kids who ride electric school buses to school are getting a healthier trip to school. One that is not exposing their developing lungs to asthma and cancer causing pollution because electric school buses don’t have a tailpipe like fossil-fueled buses.

Additionally, electric school buses account for less than half the greenhouse gas emissions of diesel- or propane-burning buses, helping us lower the risk of a warming planet. For communities across the Southeast that are ground zero for rising heat, sea-levels, and catastrophic hurricanes knowing that these buses reduce carbon pollution that is driving these threats is a double benefit.

Additionally, the economics of implementing electric buses mean real savings for the school district because the lifetime cost of operating those vehicles is significantly lower.
