Which Vermont school district is getting four electric school buses

One Chittenden County school district will be rolling cleaner this year with four new electric school buses.

The South Burlington School District will start the school year with two electric buses and will receive two more later on.

“We are excited to be able to offer our students the opportunity to ride on emissions-free transportation for the first time in our District’s history,” said Communications Coordinator Corey Burdick in a statement for the South Burlington School District. “This initiative furthers the district’s goals around climate change mitigation and is in alignment with the ways we have been partnering with the city on renewable energy.”

Vermont has been systematically swapping out gas-guzzling buses for battery-powered ones a few at a time. South Burlington joins several districts across the state that have received electric school buses.
