BYD: Ready When The Bell Rings

BYD stands hand-in-hand with those across the U.S. interested in combating climate change.Where better to start than schools?

“Through its Clean School Bus Program, the federal Environmental Protection Agency is funding the elimination of existing school buses that operate on fossil fuels and pollute the air with carbon emissions and other toxins,” according to BYD. “Assembled in California, BYD’s Type A, the Achiever, and Type D, the Dreamer, are among the battery electric school buses that qualify for this transformative program. In all, the EPA will provide $5 billion to school districts nationwide, over a five-year period.

“When it comes to zero-emission transportation, BYD brings innovation and cutting-edge technologies to forward-thinking communities and private enterprises. The only pure electric vehicle manufacturer in the U.S. to have an all-union workforce and a pioneering Community Benefits Agreement, BYD’s Lancaster, CA, manufacturing facility includes a growing number of second-chance employees, single parents and veterans. BYD has sold more than 80,000 electric buses worldwide. Its products can be found on streets from London to Indianapolis.

“We look forward to working together with school districts around the U.S., bringing better and safer conditions and clean air to our children and grandchildren — now and in the future.”
