Electric School Bus Update
ABC Student Transportation is a proud member of the Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation Electric School Bus Pilot Project. This consortium of school transportation officials are laying the foundation to replace traditional diesel buses with electric school buses in the 2019/2020 school year.
The group is working with state officials at the Department of Environmental Quality to secure funding for these vehicles which cost in excess of $300,000! ABC has garnered support for local government officials, utilities, foundations and school districts in this effort.
Electric (Zero Emission) bus will:
- Remove older polluting vehicles from the road
- Eliminate nitrogen oxide and particulate matter in the neighborhoods we serve
- Improve the health environment of students and drivers
- Educate students, parents, community and employees of benefits of zero emission vehicles
