EPA Announces Selections for the 2014 School Bus Replacement Rebate Program

2014 WCC School Bus Rebate Factsheet

On February 10th, EPA announced selections for the 2014 School Bus Replacement Rebate Program.  A total of nine school districts in California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada were selected 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).  For additional information about the bus replacements and estimated emission reductions, please see the WCC 2014 School Bus Replacement Rebate Factsheet (PDF).

Nationally, EPA is awarding more than $3 million to 76 school bus fleets to replace 210 older diesel school buses.  Funding for the bus replacements is provided through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act.  For additional information about the National Clean Diesel Rebate Program and to view a complete list of selections, please click here.
