Support federal investment in electric school buses

Getting to school shouldn't include a daily dose of toxic pollution. But the vast majority of the school buses our kids ride every day run on diesel, which endangers the health of our children and releases climate-warming pollution.

Transportation is currently the leading contributor to climate change in the U.S. We need to do all we can to cut transportation pollution and ensure our kids have a liveable future.

There's a better option: electric school buses. These have zero tailpipe emissions, reducing exposure to toxic pollutants and cutting school buses' contributions to the climate crisis. Additionally, since they cost less to fuel and maintain, electric school buses actually save school districts money.

Right now, a bipartisan group of senators are working on legislation to invest in America's infrastructure, including electric school buses. But some are instead suggesting spending federal funds on more dirty gas-powered buses that will pollute our health and climate for years.

We shouldn't spend money on dirty buses instead of pollution-free, electric school buses. Tell your U.S. senators to oppose funding for dirty, diesel and gas-powered school buses in the infrastructure agreement.
