Clean Bus Coalition Launch Event
October 5 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
With schools and school bus transportation in flux, now is the time to for change in New York City’s school bus fleet. NYLPI is partnering with New York League of Conservation Voters, WE ACT for Environmental Justice, EarthJustice, 350BK, and North Brooklyn Neighbors in launching our NYC Clean School Bus Coalition on Monday, October 5th from 4pm-5pm. Clean School Bus Coalition is fighting for the electrification of New York City’s school bus fleet.
New York City has committed to electrifying its municipal fleet by 2040, and we think that New York City’s privately owned school bus fleet of approximately 10,000 buses should be included. We are especially fighting for the electrification of school buses that run through our city’s environmental justice communities as well as those that serve children with disabilities. No child should have to be exposed to harmful diesel pollution while riding to school.
Please join our official launch and help in this fight to transform the city’s school bus fleet taking us one step closer to a better future.
