EPA Announces Selections for the 2014 School Bus Replacement Rebate Program

EPA selected nine school districts in California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada to receive over $750K for the replacement of 33 school buses.  Rebate funds will be used to replace pre-2006 model year buses, currently in regular service, with buses certified to the 2014 emission standard or that operate solely on electricity.   The following fleets in EPA Regions 9 and 10 have been selected to receive funding:  Culver City Unified School District (CA); Enterprise Elementary School District (Redding, CA); Clovis Unified School District (CA); Southern Humboldt Unified School District (Miranda, CA); Town Ride Inc. (Arcadia, CA); Springfield School District No. 19 (OR); Reynolds School District No. 7 (OR); Washoe County School District (Reno, NV); and Puyallup School District No. 3 (WA).

In total, EPA will provide rebates to 76 fleet owners across the country to replace more than 200 older diesel school buses.  For additional information about the Clean Diesel Rebate Program and to view a complete list of selections, please click here.
