The second of two School Bus Fleet webinars, held Sept. 20, is now available online for registered users.

The webinar, titled What to Know Before Adding Electric to the Mix, was sponsored by Blue Bird, IC Bus, and Thomas Built Buses. It features a conversation with:

  • Halsey King, bus fleet maintenance consultant.
  • Brittany Barrett, senior manager at the World Resources Institute.
  • Gilbert Rosas Jr., maintenance and operations director for Modesto City (Calif.) Schools.
  • Wes Platt, School Bus Fleet executive editor.

The panelists discussed safety concerns, day-to-day issues that crop up with electric school buses, and how maintenance differs between diesel and EV.
