Universities Invest in Electric Buses to Meet Carbon Neutrality Goals
America’s college campuses are among the entities leading the carbon-neutrality movement. Even before the White House set a goal to be carbon neutral by 2030, over 10 years ago, 650 higher-education institutions across the country signed a commitment to lower emissions and become carbon neutral. At least nine of those schools attained carbon neutrality in 2020.
While public transportation already contributes to lowering fuel emissions by reducing the number of vehicles on the road, low-emission vehicles reduce emissions even more. Many higher ed institutions have invested in buses running on biodiesel or biodiesel/electric hybrid technology, and the newest wave of fleet buses are zero-emission, all-electric vehicles. Harvard University made a recent move to replace a few of its biodiesel buses with battery-electric buses, making over 30% of its fleet zero-emission. Harvard is now on track to be carbon neutral by 2026. Read more HERE.
Going all-electric is definitely a positive move to reduce emissions and benefit climate change. In order to further lower emissions by reducing your need to pull from the electric grid, your fleet needs efficiency. Passio Tech provides app technology, operations management tech, and automation to make your fleet run more efficiently. Learn more about how Passio will improve your fleet.
