The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009- has awarded $1.07 million to Greater Lansing Area Clean Cities (GLACC) to reduce school bus emissions in Michigan.

Executive Director Rachel Kuntzsch, Grand Ledge Public School Superintendent Steve Matthews, Steve Marquardt from the EPA, and Kellie Dean of Dean Transportation, (pictured left to right) announced this award at our Grand Ledge Offices.

Under the grant, GLACC will:

  • Retrofit 405 Dean Transportation public school buses with Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) – reducing harmful emissions in the Lansing area and throughout the state
  • Replace six Grand Ledge Public School buses with newer, cleaner, more efficient models
