Electric School Buses: A Practical Resource Guide for School Districts ESCHOOLBUS.ORG

School districts that consider updating their fleets face many challenges. They must research and select the best bus model, set up charging systems, and, possibly the most significant challenge, budget for the upfront cost – a problem that federal and state funding programs increasingly are helping many school districts overcome.

With these issues in mind, the Electric School Bus Coalition is aware that many transportation managers and school officials are looking for a straightforward guide to help them lead successful electrification projects. This is that guide.
