Electric School Bus Pilot Charges Up in Minnesota
7 Nov 2021
Some students here will start riding an all-electric school bus this fall in a first-of-its-kind program in Minnesota.
The program is a collaboration between transportation provider Schmitty & Sons and electricity cooperatives Dakota Electric Association and Great River Energy. The goal is to demonstrate the technology of a battery-electric school bus in a cold-weather climate, as well as on longer suburban and rural routes.
