Wheels on the Bus

Adapted by Judy and David Gershon (SOCAN)(c)1992
Motor vehicles—including cars, trucks, and busses—cause air pollution. So when you take a bus, join a carpool, or ride your bike, you are helping to reduce air pollution. Check out today’s air quality  in your community and challenge yourself with the AQI Game Show .
School buses travel approximately 4 billion miles and carry more than 25 million kids each year. Clean School Bus  is a national program to help communities reduce emissions from older diesel school buses. One simple (and economical) solution: a policy to reduce bus idling while waiting for students at the end of the school day.
Ultrafine particles from vehicles, known as UFPs, can have significant effects on health. A Spring 2014 workshop , cosponsored by NIEHS and the Energy Future Coalition, highlighted some of the research on the topic supported by NIEHS and other institutions.
