  • Students climb aboard electric school buses in districts across Michigan

    This fall, students in five school districts around the state will begin to breathe easier at the bus stop as Zeeland, Gaylord, Kalamazoo, Three Rivers, and Oxford schools roll out new electric buses, partially funded by grants from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy. This collaborative effort between EGLE, the Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation, and the schools will lead to healthier air, reduced costs, and rolling classrooms for students. Two other school districts, Ann Arbor and Roseville, are scheduled to get electric buses in early 2020 under EGLE’s Fuel Transportation Program.
