Today’s environmental tip: Don’t idle!

When out conducting complimentary Energy Survey Analyses and Utility Audits, remind your school system to turn off bus engines when buses are parked.

Exhaust from idling school buses can pollute air in and around the bus, and can enter school buildings through air intakes, doors, and open windows. Constant idling also wastes fuel and money, and school bus engines really need only a few minutes to warm up.

en español: Recuérdele a su sistema escolar el apagar los motores de los autobuses cuando los autobuses estén estacionados. El escape de dichos autobuses puede contaminar el aire en y alrededor del autobús. Además, el escape puede entrar a los edificios escolares por las tomas de aire, puertas y ventanas. El dejar el vehiculo encendido mientras está estacionado también desperdicia energía y dinero. De hecho, los motores de los autobuses escolares realmente sólo necesitan pocos minutos para calentarse.
