Cleaner air. Healthier kids.

Diesel-fueled school buses have been the workhorses of school transportation for decades. Their longtime presence masks impacts that affect children’s health, school budgets and carbon emissions. Technology improvements now make electric school buses a healthier choice, and a cost-effective one, too.

Bring electric school buses to your district

VEIC is helping schools across the country make the switch to electric transportation. We’ve developed a number of resources to help you get started. These materials are informed by successes and lessons learned from deploying buses at other schools, including managing the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources electric school bus pilot project.
