Electrifying your fleet requires a plan. Use our template document to get started.
The School Bus Electrification Template Roadmap is meant to accompany WRI's Step-by-Step Guide to School Bus Electrification, a resource for school bus electrification that identifies common steps for electrifying a school bus fleet and how to center equity in that process.
This Template Roadmap can be used as a project management tool to visualize various timelines, identify which steps can occur in parallel and which should be done sequentially, and the overlap of multiple workstreams. Primary users of this tool will likely be transportation directors, (assistant) superintendents, business managers or external consultants, however it may be useful for a variety of project actors.
We welcome comments and suggestions for how to improve this resource. Please email ESBinfo@wri.org with your suggestions or to schedule a time to chat about ways to improve this resource.
