    District's third electric bus delivered

    Dr. Erin Murphy, Superintendent, was on hand to receive Lakewood’s third electric bus on March 14 from Collins Bus Corporation. In 2020, Lakewood applied for and received a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology to purchase three electric school buses at a cost lower than the purchase of diesel-fueled buses. Chargers for the buses – included with the grant – have also been installed. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, electric buses save money, since we don’t have to purchase fuel.
