The statewide Rural School Bus Pilot Project, administered by the North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District, is helping rural and small districts across the state convert to cleaner-running and zero-emission school buses. This is just one example of how cap-and-trade investments help clean the air and reduce climate-changing gases by putting hundreds of the cleanest cars, trucks and buses on our streets and highways. Almost half of investments are benefitting communities most impacted by pollution.
