2023 State of Electric School Buses in Colorado

Electric school buses are an important tool for eliminating dangerous air pollution that kids are exposed to every day by riding fossil fuel-powered school buses. At the same time, they are saving school districts money on fuel and maintenance while providing a healthier experience for kids and drivers alike. While the upfront costs are high, the combination of health and environmental benefits coupled with cost savings have led both state and federal leaders to provide grants and rebates, lowering the cost of purchasing these new buses for school districts. This year, those programs are bringing dozens of brand new electric school buses to schools and neighborhoods across the state.


I like that PIRG digs down and finds ways the system has been rigged against our long-term welfare and tries to translate that into legislative and legal action at the state, local and national levels. Nick Bridge, Member
