Subscription for electric school buses will appear in the USA To develop the infrastructure of electric cars and save the budget

For schools still struggling with the high costs of electric buses and the charging equipment needed to keep them running, companies including Highland Electric Fleets and Thomas Built Buses have struck deals to help schools overcome the woes.

On Thursday, a Massachusetts startup and a North Carolina-based school bus manufacturer offered “a subscription to electric school buses through 2025 at prices that match those of diesel ones.”

Highland provides buses and charging infrastructure, pays for electricity to charge them, covers maintenance costs, and manages other complexities of switching to electricity. The school district or transit authority pays a subscription fee that must be lower than the current budget for owning, refueling, and maintaining the existing diesel fleet.
