It is time to take action to help support the transition to electric school buses. We need your help to let the City Council know that people care about this issue.
The New York City Council has scheduled a hearing on Introduction Bill 455-2018, which was introduced by Councilmember Dromm on February 14, 2018. The bill would require the Department of Education to ensure that all school buses contracted to be zero-emission all-electric school buses by 2040.
The hearing is scheduled for Monday, December 17, 2018, at 250 Broadway, Committee room 16th floor. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10 am.
Even if you are not able to make the hearing to comment in person, there are other ways to make your voice heard on this issue.
