Students deserve a safe ride to school, yet most school buses still run on diesel. Diesel exhaust is a known carcinogen that causes numerous health problems, including lung cancer, asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia.

The solution: Electric school buses. Not only do electric school buses result in better air quality and healthier kids, they are also better for the environment and have been shown to be cheaper to maintain over the lifetime of the bus, due to fewer parts and fuel costs.

Come learn more about how state legislators can help champion the transition to all-electric school buses for the kids in your state.
