Over the next five years, WRI will partner with school districts, communities, environmental justice organizations, utilities, manufacturers, and policymakers to build unstoppable momentum toward electrifying the U.S. fleet of 480,000 school buses by 2030. The initiative will advance an equity-centered approach to accelerating electric bus procurement and scaling manufacturing, charging infrastructure, funding, and financing. School bus electrification represents a unique opportunity to advance decarbonization, create jobs, and improve air quality and health, particularly in communities of color and for other people who are disproportionately impacted by air pollution.
