The National School Transportation Association (NSTA) recently presented its Go Yellow, Go Green award to The Trans Group of Spring Valley, New York, for the school bus company’s achievements in emission reductions and environmental sustainability. The occasion was NSTA’s 50th Anniversary Annual Meeting & Convention, held in Charleston, South Carolina. Assisting the NSTA in recognizing The Trans Group’s commitment to positive responses to environmental concerns was Karl Simon, director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Air Office’s Transportation and Climate Division. Go Yellow, Go Green is a national campaign to promote the greater use of school buses as a viable response to air pollution and excessive fuel usage. According to the NSTA, one school bus can replace as many as 36 personal vehicles on each trip to and from school — significantly reducing total carbon emissions and total fuel usage. Trans Group President and NSTA Hall of Fame Member John Corr was present to accept the Go Yellow, Go Green award.
