Mid-Atlantic Electric School Bus Experience Project
The Mid-Atlantic Electric School Bus Experience Project (MEEP) provides electric school buses for short-term demonstrations at no charge for selected school fleets in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Electric school buses are an exciting tool for school districts as they can reduce operating costs, improve local air quality, achieve sustainability goals, and protect the health of children. The objective of the project is to provide local school districts (school administrators, mechanics, drivers, faculty, and students) with experience operating electric school buses in their fleets and to generate detailed, in-use data and information to allow other school districts to make future procurement decisions.
