Kelly, Sinema Deliver Over $8.3 Million for Arizona Clean School Buses Thanks to Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Bipartisan infrastructure law led by Sinema and shaped by Kelly funds over 30 electric school buses across Arizona

Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema announced $8,345,000 for Arizona clean school buses for school districts across Arizona thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

As part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Schools Bus Program rebate competition, funded through Kelly and Sinema’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, today’s award recipients will be able to replace a total of 30 older, diesel school buses with electric school buses.  

“The impact of our bipartisan infrastructure law is reaching everyone, including kids,” said Kelly. “This investment will help schools in Arizona replace old buses so more students can ride zero-emission vehicles, improving health outcomes and reducing pollution.” 

“Today’s $8.3 million investment from my Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will bring 30 electric buses to Arizona – helping students travel safely to school while ensuring a cleaner and healthier Arizona,” said Sinema, co-author and lead negotiator of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
