100% of our on-road fleet will be Electric Vehicles (EV) by 2025
Carbon neutral today
Zūm is offsetting 100% of emissions for its entire fleet from 2021 onwards
There is no looking back
The next decade will be nothing like the past few decades. The time to begin the transition to EV’s is now.
Electric school buses, charging infrastructure, and EV technology is advancing rapidly.
Growing demand is driving down costs for consumers and accelerating production.
State and national mandates along with financial incentives have spurred increased adoption of clean technology and fleet electrification.
Why electric school buses?
Electric school buses offer the only true zero emission solution for schools.
The Myths vs. The Facts
Many common misconceptions persist when it comes to electric school buses.
Range & power
Electric buses now have range up to and exceeding 155 miles on a single charge, which is more than sufficient for the vast majority of daily school bus routes.
Ongoing benefits of EV, such as lower maintenance costs and savings from V2G, far exceed the upfront transition costs of switching from diesel to electric school buses.
EV batteries are engineered with cold and hot weather in mind to counter the effects of extreme weather.
EV charging technology and storage has improved rapidly, allowing buses to charge faster and hold a charge longer.
With fewer moving parts, maintenance costs are dramatically lower for new electric fleets versus diesel school buses.
Electric school bus OEMs and providers offer training for school bus drivers, maintenance technicians, and district leaders, making transition to EV simple and easy.

Benefits of electric school buses extend beyond a cleaner ride
Progressive leaders at school districts nationwide understand and appreciate the benefits of electrifying their student transportation.
Reducing students’ exposure to diesel exhaust and harmful pollution significantly reduces students’ risk of asthma and other respiratory illnesses.
Improved student experience
Your students will notice the difference when they experience their first ride on a new, quiet, and emissions free electric school bus.
Eliminate air and noise pollution to ensure clean and quiet rides for your students and community.
Pollution and harmful emissions disproportionately impact low-income communities and communities of color.
Leverage funding and training available to replace the most polluting buses, accelerate the transition to EV, and spur job creation.
Replacing diesel school buses with electric ones dramatically reduces ongoing maintenance and fuel costs and provides long-term savings to school districts, tax payers, and the community.
