Our EV Future

Electric School Buses Are Taking Off


The World Resources Institute released an updated electric school bus adoption tracker and found school districts and fleet operators have now committed to 12,275 electric school buses across 38 states. 10,000 of these buses come from a partnership between SEA Electric and Midwest Transit Equipment (MTE).

With a school bus fleet of 480,000, the US still has a long way to go to phase out toxic, diesel-fueled buses. However, these findings represent we are trending in the right direction.

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.
