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.
