Clean Buses for Kids Campaign Launch

You are invited to the launch of Clean Buses for Kids, a campaign to transition Fairfax County Public Schools’ buses from diesel to electric. The launch will be held at Patrick Henry Library in Vienna on August 20, 2019, from 6:00 to 6:45 p.m. This event is for legislators, School Board members, FCPS staff, press, and the public.

Join us to learn more about how electric school buses represent a concrete step toward ensuring clean air and a livable future for Fairfax County’s children.

Electric school buses, with no tailpipe emissions, eliminate children’s exposure to dangerous diesel exhaust during their ride to school. They have lower global warming emissions than diesel, even when the source of electricity is taken into account. They have no engine, muffler, or alternator that requires tune-ups, meaning a lifetime fuel and maintenance savings over diesel buses of up to $170,000. They have a lower center of gravity than diesel buses and so are less likely to roll over. They are safer for our kids and cleaner for our environment. 

We look forward to seeing you on August 20!
