Surge in demand for electric school buses

1 min read

School bus manufacturer Blue Bird has seen a surge in demand for their electric models. Much of that demand is coming from California but interest and adoption seems to be growing nationally, helped by local grants and financial incentives that are increasingly available.

“With districts able to obtain grant and other financial assistance, locations that we have deployed electric school buses in were the first in their state to have an EV bus in their fleet,” said Phil Horlock, president and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation. “As the only manufacturer currently producing every bus type in Electric, we can help districts start to introduce and potentially transform their entire fleet over time to zero emissions.”
