Bill expanding electric school buses passes California assembly

On Friday morning, the California State Assembly passed AB 2731, a bill that would require all purchases of new school buses be zero-emission beginning in 2035. The bill now moves to the State Senate, where it will have to be passed and then signed by the governor before becoming law.

In California, nearly 25,000 school buses drive more than 230 million miles every year. The state is already a leader in the transition to electric school buses, with some districts like LAUSD committed to a 100% electric fleet, and Twin Rivers Unified boasting the largest fleet of electric school buses in the country. This bill would set the stage for California to become an even stronger national leader in electric school bus adoption.

Tell the Governor: make all state-owned vehicles electric

Tell the Governor: make all state-owned vehicles electric

State government fleets operate thousands of vehicles, and agencies can use their purchasing power to invest in more electric vehicles. Ask your Governor to lead by example by directing state agencies to purchase electric vehicles.
