  • New York Bus Incentive Program – School Bus program
    In the April 2022 budget passed by the New York State Legislature and signed by Governor Hochul, the State established a deadline for the transition to zero-emission buses. Specifically, all school buses purchased by 2027 must be zero-emission buses, with the entire fleet transitioned to zero emission by 2035. In 2022, voters across NYS overwhelmingly voted for the Clean Air, Clean Water and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act (Bond Act) which includes $500M to support the transition to zero-emission school buses. NYSERDA has established the NY School Bus Incentive Program (NYSBIP) to achieve these State public purposes and assist school districts in meeting the zero-emission bus timelines.
