Bridgeport Retrofits 111 School Buses
Bridgeport, Connecticut public school buses will be equipped with devices to reduce diesel emissions. The project involves 111 buses contracted by the city.
The Bridgeport announcement followed an event in New Haven where the EPA announced nine grants for clean diesel projects in the Northeast totaling $3.8 million. Two of the grants were awarded for programs in Connecticut:
New Haven will receive $114,855 to retrofit constriction equipment operating onsite at the New Haven Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School. Hamden is one of five communities in the Northeast that will share in $300,000 to retrofit school buses.
Cummins Metropower will supply the devices for the retrofits.
