Hide details for Project Title & DescriptionProject Title & Description

This assistance agreement provides funding to the National School Transportation Association under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. This project will reduce diesel emissions from school buses. Approximately 98 new buses will be purchased and 88 diesel reduction technologies will be installed on other school bus fleets. The communities in Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine and Waukesha Counties in Wisconsin will have cleaner air to breath as a result of this project. With these emission reduction upgrades, 76,567 students will benefit, along with their entire communities, with healthier and cleaner environments. School bus manufactures have suffered serious cutbacks in work forces during the past year as orders for new school buses have declined dramatically. Job preservation and creation is maximized by creating demand for more manufactured buses along with all other related work activities in the bus manufacturing industry. It is expected that 119 jobs will be created and/or preserved as a result of this project. Environmental pollution, fuel use and maintenance savings from more efficient buses will also help the economy and provide health benefits for the citizens of Wisconsin. In addition, fuel saving from the more efficient school buses will provide an immediate economic benefit to the school bus fleet now and in the future.
