🚌 Buncombe County Schools peered into the future with a test run of an electric bus! As we wrap up Love The Bus Week, we wanted to thank White’s IC Bus for bringing a demo #electric bus to Buncombe County for all area school systems to tour and test drive. This electric bus is a zero-emissions option with a variety of features. There are battery options to offer the longest range on each charge, and there are settings to recharge the battery every time the bus brakes. There is a full camera system, an option for WiFi, and the electric motor provides a smooth, quiet ride! “This was a neat opportunity to see into the future of school transportation,” said Jeremy Stowe, BCS Transportation Director. “I enjoyed the test drive to see how an electric bus could maneuver the mountains of western North Carolina. I can see school systems across North Carolina beginning to transition to this new, green technology in the near future.”

Today, Monday, February 13, will be a two hour delay for students, and no buses will travel on icy roads. This is out of an abundance of caution and due to lingering low temperatures and wet roadways that have caused slick conditions in several districts. Parents, your child will be served breakfast when they arrive at school. Staff, please plan on arriving at your normal time if you’re able to travel safely. If you’re unable to travel safely, please contact your supervisor. Thank you!
