The Sunnyvale School District test rode one of its new all-electric buses for the first time on a route to Lakewood on Dec. 11!
The district acquired four new all-electric buses and one new natural gas school bus in the fall thanks to a grant from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District that the District’s mechanic, Dion Childs, recommended the district pursue. The grant was approved by the Board of Education in September.
The total cost of the five buses would have been $1.8M but the district only had to pay $212,524 thanks to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) grant.
Here’s to a greener future!
