Electric school buses are a growing topic of discussion in the transportation industry. To help inform schools about electric school buses, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a technical assistance program aimed at K–12 schools that are interested in incorporating electric school buses into their fleets. The “Flipping the Switch on Electric School Buses” series is a multi-part technical assistance series. Each part contains several modules that discuss key topics. Modules can be watched in order, or viewers can watch only those that are most applicable to them and their fleet.
Learn more about the electric school bus series on the Alternative Fuels Data Center website.
