ROUSH CleanTech’s Clean School Bus program informs states on the maximum emissions reduction and monetary savings that they could achieve based on the VW Trust funds they allocate to replacing school buses.
ROUSH CleanTech has been developing cutting-edge propane engine technology for Ford vehicles and Blue Bird school buses since 2010, and now encourages a "data driven" approach for districts looking to secure VW Mitigation Trust Funds for clean energy vehicles in public and private school buses operations.
Late buses, school bus drivers unfamiliar with routes, and missing children on the first day of school prompted officials to close Muncie Community Schools in Indiana for the rest of the week. This is the latest hitch in a series of problems for the financially embattled school district.
A pilot project consisting of 82 school buses equipped with lap/shoulder seat belts last year for 11 North Carolina school districts is being expanded in the 2017-2018 school year, with 114 new buses with the three-point restraints being put into use among 13 districts.
Parents started a petition in response to a decision by the Menifee United School District located about 80 miles southeast of Los Angeles to cut school bus transportation in the coming school year for all general education students.

Strengthening candidacy for grant funding is certainly meticulous but possible with the right tools and advisement, especially for a sizeable settlement like Volkswagen's.
