EPA announces 2016 School Bus Replacement and Retrofit Rebates
2016 School Bus Replacement and Retrofit Rebates
Approximately $7 million is available in rebates to public school bus fleet owners for the replacement or retrofit of older school buses.
"Our kids spend a lot of time on the school bus, and buses spend a lot of time in our neighborhoods and school yards. They are a national symbol of safety,” said Janet McCabe, Acting Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. "Significantly improving school bus fleets across the country with retrofits, replacements, and idle reduction practices is imperative in meeting the Agency’s goal of reducing children’s exposure to air toxics.”
