The city of Boston’s environment department is to reduce emissions by electrifying the school buses fleet by 2030.
Mayur Wv also recommitted to zero-emission Boston green jobs by launching the electric vehicle as a “train and trainer ” program, this is a partnership between the public works Department madison park and technical vocational high school.
As per the WBUR report, “This will be the trainer model because then we will be training our young people to be able to step into these jobs right away,” Wu told reporters at Roxbury’s Madison Park Technical Vocational High School, where she said electric vehicle training will be integrated into the core curriculum starting this fall.
Longer-term, BPS will work to replace additional big buses each year, and then move to replace smaller buses until the entire fleet is electrified visit.
