Drive Clean Colorado and Highland Electric Fleets Host Electric School Bus Ride Along and Q&A Session at Denver Auto Show on Saturday, April 15th at 2pm

Drive Clean Colorado and Highland Electric Fleets will answer questions about transportation electrification and state and federal funding opportunities prior to the ride along.


Denver Colorado, April 12, 2022 – Drive Clean Colorado, a non-profit member organization that supports equitable clean transportation and efficient mobility choices across the state of Colorado, and Highland Electric Fleets, the leading provider of school bus fleet electrification-as-a-service in North America, are hosting an electric school bus ride along this Saturday, April 15th at 2pm MT in support of the state’s fleet electrification goals.


One of the buses from the state’s first fully electric fleet at Peak to Peak Charter School will be available to view and will take a drive around downtown Denver near the Colorado Convention Center. Staff from both organizations will host a joint Q&A session prior to the ride along to answer questions about fleet electrification and the recent state and federal funding opportunities to support fleets across the state of Colorado.


“We applaud Peak to Peak for committing to a fully electric school bus fleet with the help of Highland Electric Fleets and other partners. Their experience provides a valuable case study that other districts can learn from and that manufacturers and utilities can expand upon,” said Bonnie Trowbridge, Drive Clean Colorado’s executive director. “This is important especially now when there is so much federal and state funding available to accelerate implementation of clean school buses and infrastructure.”


“We are proud to work with our partners at Peak to Peak and Drive Clean Colorado to showcase electric school buses in action,” said Jane Culkin, Highland’s western regional manager for market development. “It’s a very exciting time for fleet electrification, particularly school bus electrification, with significant funding at both the federal and state levels. We look forward to helping keep the momentum going here and bringing cleaner, healthier transportation to Colorado students and communities.”
