School buses are the safest way for children to get to school.
However, pollution from diesel vehicles has health implications for everyone, especially children.
By working together, we can reduce pollution from public school buses making sure that school buses are also a very clean way for children to get to school.
Clean school bus efforts are bringing together partners from business, education, transportation, and public health organizations to work toward these goals:
- Encouraging policies and practices to eliminate unnecessary school bus idling.
- Upgrading (retrofitting) buses that will remain in the fleet with better emission control technologies and/or fueling them with cleaner fuels.
- Replacing the oldest buses in fleets with new, less polluting buses.
