Diesel school buses expose children to dangerous fumes which have been linked to asthma, cancer and respiratory illnesses. School districts need to replace these dirty diesel buses with healthier, quieter and cleaner electric buses.
Electric school buses have already been successfully adopted in cities from Florida to North Dakota, and can actually save school districts money in the long term. Yet, many school districts still need help to afford the transition to clean electric buses.
More federal funding for electric buses would ensure that schools across the country have the resources to protect children's health and the environment from diesel pollution.
