25 electric school buses to be rolled out by Baltimore City school system

April 5, 2023

The familiar rumble of Baltimore City’s diesel school buses will soon give way to quieter electric vehicles transporting about 350 students beginning next year. The city school system has entered into a public-private partnership with Massachusetts-based Highland Electric Fleets, which plans to install 25 chargers to fuel 20 electric school buses during the 2023-24 academic year, the company announced Tuesday. Funded through a combination of federal and state grants and tax credits, the 12-year contract is similar to Highland’s partnership with Montgomery County school system, which is operating more than 300 electric school buses.
