WELCOME TO THE ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUS CAMPAIGN
Our mission is to enact legislation to speed up the transition to the use of fully electric or other zero emission propulsion for school buses. Our goal is to promote legislation that will ban the use of diesel and other combustible fuel (gasoline, propane, natural gas, hybrid, and etc.) school buses and require the use of zero emission electric school buses.
TAKE ACTION! SUPPORT ELECTRIC SCHOOL BUSES
We have pulled together a number of petitions that you can sign to help bring about the electric school bus future. For New Yorkers you can send a letter to your City Council Member to support Intro bill 455. We also have both a Care2.com and Change.org petition to ask NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio to support electric school buses.
On the national level we have links to the League of Conservation Voters Chispa campaign and the US PIRG campaign to get States to use their VW settlements towards purchasing electric school buses.
NYC can do better!
WE MUST DO BETTER!!!!
All of these dirty diesel school buses were spotted by me on the streets of New York in a one month period between October and November of 2017.
The idling bus was found in front off a school "recharging it's batteries" and two of the buses were wheelchair accessible school buses.
