Why Electric School Buses Matter

  • Diesel-powered vehicles account for nearly half of NOx and over two-thirds of all particulate matter
  • emissions from US transportation sources
  • Diesel exhaust contains as many as 40 hazardous air pollutants as defined by the Clean Air Act
  • Riding a diesel bus every day can increase a child’s risk for cancer by 4%, lower respiratory symptoms by
  • 6%, and daily asthma hospitalizations by 1%. (California Air Resources Board, 2016)
  • 71% of the cancer risk from air pollutants for the average Californian is associated with diesel emissions
  • (California Air Resources Board)
  • Children are exposed to airborne particulate concentrations inside buses that are sometimes 5-15 times
  • higher than background levels (Yale University, 2002)
  • Concentrations of air pollutants have dropped significantly since 1990, but are still dangerously high in
  • many parts of the country
  • Learn how electric school buses can be cost neutral to diesel school buses
