Batteries and Buses: Region 3 Clean School Bus Rebate Program Webinar

In this webinar from December 13, 2023, the Electrification Coalition and EPA Region 3 Clean School Bus Team discussed the Clean School Bus Rebate Program, closing January 31, 2024. We heard from bus dealers, student transportation fleet operators, utilities, advocates, the EPA Clean School Bus Team, and an awarded school district from the last rebate program. Using their experience and expertise, our speakers spoke on how to apply, provided high-level advice for districts currently applying, and discussed how to best work with your utility, the Justice40 initiative and environmental justice considerations of the program, and how best to engage rural school districts in the future of electric student transportation.
