Are there any schools doing anything to reduce the pollution caused by school buses?

    Yes there are. Actually, the EPA has made an anti-idling Clean School Bus website that gives school tips on how to make anti-idling policies and gives examples of current legislation. These schools have all made anti-idling policies for their school buses/parents picking up students:

    • N.H. DES Air Resources Division, Concord, NH (R1)
    • Air Pollution Control Division, Waterbury, VT (R1)
    • Longwood Combined School District, Yaphank, NY (R2)
    • Pinellas County Department of Environmental Management, Clearwater, FL (R4)
    • Okemos Public Schools, Okemos, MI (R5)
    • Ohio Environmental Council, Columbus, OH (R5)
    • Howell School District, Howell, MI (R5)
    • St. Charles Parish Public Schools, Luling, LA (R6)
    • St. Louis Association of Community Organizations (SLACO), St. Louis, MO (R7)
    • Adams 12 Five-Star Schools, Broomfield, CO (R8)

    Some schools are encouraging their children to walk to school instead of using a bus or having their parents drive the. This is a good way to reduce childhood obesity, too!
