Austin ISD’s transportation department received an honorable mention for the 2015 Green Fleet Award from 100 Best Fleets of North America.
This is the sixth consecutive year AISD’s fleet of 522 school buses has been recognized by 100 Best Fleets, a transportation industry awards program.
The author of the Green Fleet Awards contest, Tom Johnson said that increasing advances in technology are transforming energy use and efficiency, and adapting fleets to changing conditions is good for the environment and for society.
“We work hard to make sure our entire fleet stays well-maintained and efficient, while replacing aging buses with options that include additional safety and efficiency features,” AISD Director of Pupil Transportation Kris Hafezizadeh said.
The 100 Best Fleets Program recognizes peak performing fleet operations in North America.
