Announced, this latest funding round provides nearly $900M in awards for approximately 3,400 buses across 530 school districts.

“Today’s funding announcement from the EPA will start many school districts on their electrification journey,” said Matt Stanberry, VP of Market Development at Highland Electric Fleets. “With Highland’s extensive experience deploying electric fleets around the country, we’re well positioned to partner with those districts to help them fulfill that journey and bring cleaner, healthier transportation to their communities.”

The company has recently expanded its electrification-as-a-service model from its origins in electric school buses to include other municipal and heavy-duty vehicles.
