Green School Bus

Florida was the first in the Nation to get a plug-in hybrid school bus! Manatee County Schools in Bradenton is participating in the plug-in Hybrid Electric School Bus Project and received two of 19 hybrid buses given nationwide by Advanced Energy, a non-profit corporation. Each bus has a hybrid drivetrain manufactured by Enova Systems. The buses should emit 90 less diesel engine emissions and get 70 to 100 percent better fuel economy.

More information about the hybrid school bus program is available at Hybrid School Bus.
