School buses travel about four billion miles each year, providing the safest transportation to and from school for more than 25 million American children every day. However, diesel exhaust from these buses has a negative impact on human health, especially for children who have a faster breathing rate than adults and whose lungs are not yet fully developed.
While new buses must meet EPA’s tougher emission standards, many older school buses continue to emit harmful diesel exhaust. The Sabine Neches RC&D was able to assist in the purchase of new school buses to help Chapel Hill ISD, Elysian Fields ISD, and Waskom ISD reduce emissions from older diesel school buses.
