schoolbus -- Lower-Emission School Bus Program Mail-Out MSC #11-27: Retrofit Eligibility Posted: 18 Aug 2011 09:53:00
A mail-out has been posted that revises the 2008 Lower-Emission School Bus Program Guidelines for retrofit funding eligibility and sets requirements in place for buses with older chassis to help ensure they remain in service for at least five years. Mail-Out #MSC 11-27 can be found at the LESBP Advisories / Mail-outs page: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/msc1127/msc1127.pdf For more information on the Lower-Emission School Bus Program, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/bonds/schoolbus/schoolbus.htm If you have any questions, please contact Janet Page at (916) 324-1988 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Background: The Lower-Emission School Bus Program is a grant program that provides funds to purchase new buses to replace old, high-emitting public school buses, and to equip in-use diesel school buses with retrofit devices that significantly reduce toxic particulate matter (PM) emissions. It is administered by the ARB and implemented by local air quality management and air pollution control districts (air districts). The primary goal of the Lower-Emission School Bus Program is to reduce school children’s exposure to both cancer-causing and smog-forming pollution. The program does not impose any regulatory requirements on school districts and their participation in the program is voluntary.
