First Student electric school buses surpass 3 million miles driven

School transportation provider First Student, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, has surpassed three million miles driven by its electric school buses.

The company has deployed more than 330 electric buses to North American school districts and approved 1,108 more for order. It has a goal of transitioning 30,000 diesel school buses to electric by 2035.

First Student was among the top recipients of funds from the EPA’s Clean School Bus Program, which provides $5 billion over the years 2022 to 2026. First Student assists school districts in applying for the funding and has secured close to $220 million so far. In January, the EPA awarded First Student $140 million—the most it has awarded to any contractor—to deploy more than 370 electric school buses in US school districts.
