North Central Texas Clean School Bus Program

North Central Texas Clean School Bus Program Overview

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) houses the North Central Texas (NCT) Clean School Bus Program.

The mission of this program is to reduce emissions from school bus fleets and improve air quality at school campuses in order to both reduce health impacts associated with poor air quality and support regional efforts to attain federal air quality standards.

  • Program Goals

    • Provide grant funding for projects that reduce emissions from older, high-emitting school buses.
    • Provide education materials to schools, school districts, and school bus operators about various clean school bus options that can improve school bus fleets, benefit the environment, and protect the health of school aged children.
    • Promote implementation and enforcement of anti-idling policies for school buses and all other vehicles that operate within a school zone.
