  • The Commissioner of Social Services waives the requirements;
  • Zero emission bus acquisition, recharging, or refueling equipment would result in unreasonable costs to the school district; or,
  • Vehicles do not meet performance requirements.

Zero emission school buses may be powered by electricity or hydrogen. Before acquiring a zero emission bus, school districts must create a workforce development report that estimates the impact of zero emission buses on employment opportunities, identifies maintenance staff training needs, and estimates costs to train employees in how to operate zero emission buses and infrastructure.

(Reference Senate Bill 8006, 2022)

Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Deployment Support

New York joined California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont in signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to support the deployment of ZEVs through involvement in a ZEV Program Implementation Task Force (Task Force). In May 2014, the Task Force published a ZEV Action Plan (Plan) identifying 11 priority actions to accomplish the goals of the MOU, including deploying at least 3.3 million ZEVs and adequate fueling infrastructure within the signatory states by 2025. The Plan also includes a research agenda to inform future actions. On an annual basis, each state must report on the number of registered ZEVs, the number of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and hydrogen fueling stations, and available information regarding workplace fueling for ZEVs.

In June 2018, the Task Force published a new ZEV Action Plan for 2018-2021. Building on the 2014 Action Plan, the 2018 Action Plan makes recommendations for states and other key partners in five priority areas:

  • Raising consumer awareness and interest in electric vehicle technology;
  • Building out a reliable and convenient residential, workplace and public charging/fueling infrastructure network;
  • Continuing and improving access to consumer purchase and non-financial incentives;
  • Expanding public and private sector fleet adoption; and
  • Supporting dealership efforts to increase ZEV sales.
