Recorded Webinar: Zero Emissions Makes Cents; Integrating Electric School Buses into Your Fleet

Zero-Emission school buses are more than just buzz, and with advances in technology, electric school bus deployments will only continue to increase. But what does fleet integration look like? Does the performance and reliability of electric school buses live up to expectations? What are some of the inherent challenges with the adoption of electric school buses? How can districts best prepare for the changes and ensure they are choosing the right partners?

These questions and more were answered in our June 25 webinar by industry experts and school districts who are currently running electric school buses in their fleets.

Topics included:

  • Questions to ask of your electric school bus providers.
  • The importance of serviceability and support for your electric school bus.
  • The total cost of ownership and leveraging earning opportunities (V2G, LCFS, grants, etc).
  • Best practices for infrastructure planning.
  • Open Q&A with school districts running electric vehicles on daily routes.

Blue Bird Corporation, Cummins, and A-Z Bus Sales hosted a comprehensive webinar on June 25. Watch this recorded webcast to get insights regarding electric school bus integration, performance, serviceability, and tips to ensure your deployments are a success.
