Bolsters Goal of Becoming 100% Zero-emissions by 2035

Lisle, IL – National Express School (NEXS), a leader in student transportation, is proud to announce that its school district partners have been named recipients of the 2023 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean School Bus Grant Program Round Two Award. These newly awarded grants will allow NEXS to add 91 new electric school buses to our growing fleet of zero-emission vehicles and further bolster our goal of achieving 100% zero-emissions by 2035.

The new electric vehicles will begin to be deployed this year across Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Ohio, Tennessee, and Washington.

“We are thrilled by the grant awards, as the funds will greatly assist us in providing our partners with best-in-class “clean-fueled” vehicles,” said Nick Voisard, Senior Director of Electric Vehicles, National Express LLC. “As we continue to shift our focus towards electrification and sustainability initiatives, the positive outcomes of zero-emissions school buses are both inspiring and reinforced by a growing wealth of supportive data and studies. As such, we are excited to embark on these new journeys with our partners and look forward to the healthier and more sustainable futures we are building for our students and communities.”
