School districts and bus companies are invited to share accounts of emissions reductions and positive impacts on their students and communities with their implementation of clean fuel and energy. The Green Fleet Awards winners will be announced on July 16 during the Green Bus Summit at STN EXPO Reno.
School Transportation News presents the awards in affiliation with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, which will assist in judging the nominations.
Awards will be given to small districts and contractors that operate fewer than 100 buses as well as larger districts and contractors. Eligible fuels and energy include biodiesel (fleets must be using at least a B20 blend), CNG, electric, propane, and renewable fuels.
“The team at School Transportation News is honored to recognize green leadership in the school transportation industry. We applaud the commitment of school districts and private fleet contractors as they invest in greener and cleaner school buses,” said Tony Corpin, the magazine’s publisher and president of STN Media Group. “Our industry is playing an important role in reducing emissions while improving student and community health. I’m proud that we can support a mission driven goal for a greener future in school transportation!”
