Mothers Out Front Fairfax County are in the news with a #VIDEO report from WDVM about the Electric School Bus campaign! #CleanBuses4Kids
FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WDVM) — Last fall, Fairfax County sealed a deal with Dominion Energy to replace its diesel school buses with electric by 2030, thanks to the effort of Mothers Out Front Fairfax.
On Monday [Feb. 13], Mothers Out Front declared its support for Delegate Mark Keam’s (D-Va 35) bill, introduced in the Virginia House of Delegates last week, that would incentivize school districts across the state to make the switch to electric by 2030.
Mothers Out Front Fairfax Co-Leader Bobby Monacella says there are four times more school buses than transit buses in the United States. Fairfax County is home to the country’s second largest school bus fleet.
