CARB’s Clean Mobility Initiative: Advancing Zero-Emissions School Travel

California Air Resources Board (CARB) is making strides in promoting zero-emissions school travel beyond just electric school buses. Recently, CARB allocated $33 million to seven low-income communities to support zero-emissions transportation options for schoolchildren. While electric school buses were not included in this specific funding, initiatives such as electric shuttle buses, car and bike sharing programs, and pedestrian safety projects like Safe Routes to School are being prioritized. The Clean Mobility in Schools and Sustainable Transportation Equity Project aims to reduce reliance on personal vehicles and promote cleaner, shared transportation alternatives. By awarding grants to cities like El Monte, Sacramento, Hayward, Needles, San Diego, and the San Joaquin Valley, CARB is working towards a more sustainable and equitable transportation future in California. This funding is part of the larger $48 billion California Climate Commitment, with a significant portion dedicated to accelerating the zero-emission vehicle transition and expanding charging infrastructure. CARB’s efforts reflect a commitment to addressing historic inequities in mobility options and promoting environmentally friendly transportation solutions for all Californians.
