School Bus Market Trends

The school bus industry is witnessing notable trends driven by increasing investments from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in environmentally friendly school buses. With a growing emphasis on reducing emissions and improving air quality, the EPA's funding for eco-friendly school buses has spurred a shift towards cleaner technologies. Electric and alternative fuel-powered buses are becoming more prevalent as school districts seek to minimize their environmental impact. These buses offer reduced emissions, lower fuel costs, and quieter operation than traditional diesel buses. Moreover, the EPA's investments have prompted innovation in the school bus industry, leading to the development of more efficient and sustainable transportation solutions. As a result, the school bus market is experiencing a noticeable trend toward greener and more environmentally friendly school buses.

For instance, in April 2024, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revealed plans to allocate close to USD 1 billion in grants aimed at replacing gas-powered heavy-duty vehicles and school buses with electric counterparts. The funding will cover the development of charging infrastructure as well as workforce development and training initiatives.
