Pontiac schools will be adding to their bus fleet next year with the help of the Environmental Protection Agency. As part of their Clean Bus Program, Pontiac will receive $9.75 million to purchase 25 electric buses. 'We want to show our students and community the investment we have in their futures which not only includes their educational well being, but the environmental well being as well,' said Bill Holcolmb, Energy and Technology Innovation specialist for Pontiac schools. 'This will hopefully be the first step in transitioning the district fleet of vehicles to an EV fleet, which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save money for the district and produce cleaner air as well as reduce noise pollution in the community.
