Clean School Buses Coming to the Region


Awards from the EPA's Clean School Bus Program Grants competition were recently announced for Cahokia Heights, East St. Louis, and Granite City in Illinois. In Missouri, the Ferguson-Florissant School District and Ritenour School District received funding for clean school buses. Funding was also awarded to a third party that will provide clean school buses to Normandy Schools Collaborative and Saint Louis Public Schools. Electrifying school buses can help reduce air pollutants that can be harmful to the health of children, such as particulate matter and nitrogen oxide (NOx). Electric buses also have a reduced greenhouse gas emissions footprint, compared to diesel buses.
