Higher upfront costs of electric buses may deter some school districts from converting their diesel fleets, but it is not the only concern.
In fact, the Fairfield-Suisun schools have considered converting, but is not sure the electric buses could meet all the district’s needs.
“They have been considering it, but they have not converted or purchased electric buses,” Tim Goree, executive director of administrative services and community engagement at the Fairfield-Suisun School District, said in a phone interview.
The “they” to whom Goree references are the district’s transportation officials.
