Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) contractor ABC Student Transportation brings new technology to district. ABC Student Transportation has provided reliable and safe transportation to the DPSCD for (25) years. They transport over (10,000) students daily.
ABC Student Transportation was selected to participate in a pilot program with the Michigan Association of Pupil Transportation and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to study the feasibility of electric school buses in Michigan. Several school districts in California have used electric buses for years with tremendous savings in both fuel and environmental costs.
Blue Bird and Lion Bus are the leading bus manufacturers of electric school buses. ABC expects to take delivery of these new zero emissions vehicles next summer for the 2019/2020 school year.
