The Municipal EV Readiness Toolkit 12-Week Program Module 2: Electric School Buses will help school boards, town purchasing & finance departments, and bus contractors learn how to electrify their fleets and develop town-wide, comprehensive electrification plans to reach 30% electric by 2030.

We encourage all course participants to join us for Module 2 and learn how through the modules will work together to support and develop an individualized, town-wide, transportation electrification plan.
