Baltimore City among Maryland districts rolling out clean school buses

November 9, 2022

Baltimore City Public Schools was the only Maryland school district to receive funding from a recent round of awards for new clean school buses. The district was awarded $9.4 million for an estimated 25 buses, which tied for the largest award in the country in numbers of buses. Meanwhile, the Montgomery County School District added 61 new electric buses to its fleet late last month, part of a planned 326 buses to be added by 2024. While Montgomery County now has the largest operating electric fleet in the nation, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced Oct. 26 that 391 school districts across the U.S will soon receive nearly $1 billion combined for new clean school buses.
