A portion of this grant will be used to advance the adoption of zero emission school buses in the United States. Blue Bird, as the market leader in alternative power school buses, including our #1 selling all electric models, supports all efforts to advance this innovative technology.
The recent expansion of our electric bus capabilities to approximately 1000 bus unit capacity per year positions Blue Bird to immediately support this important advancement.
We look forward to working with WRI on this initiative and hope this is the first of many awards from the Bezos Earth Fund to make the transportation of our nation’s students in a zero-emission environment a reality for all children in the U.S.
