Electrify Your Fleet with NY’s Latest Funding for Electric School Bus Charging Infrastructure

Governor Kathy Hochul announced new funding for electric school bus charging infrastructure, opening up a world of opportunities for New York’s school districts. With funding now available under the monumental $4.2 billion Environmental Bond Act, the path to an electric, zero-emission school bus fleet by 2035 just got clearer. This move not only echoes New York’s dedication to slashing greenhouse gas emissions but also underscores the commitment to our children’s health and the planet’s future.
