retrofit successes

179 diesel oxidation catalysts (DOCs) and closed crankcase ventilation (CCV) systems installed on pre-2003 buses

Retrofit Successes

Recent installation of retrofit devices on our school buses will eliminate 50 tons of air pollutants.

idle reduction successes
Idle Reduction Successes
  • Established Formal Idle Reduction Policy
  • Established idle reduction training during annual summer driver training and new driver training throughout the year.
  • Final report data suggest that the idle awareness of the drivers has heightened as a result of the formal driver training program and their knowledge of school bus idle monitoring
  • Idling is well below thirty minutes per day goal
  • very few idling complaints received by the district
  • Citizen awareness has increased

Idle Reduction Successes

Participated in the National Idle Reduction Campaign Pilot

idle reduction strategies get results
Idle reduction strategies get results …

809 buses on the road per day

Over 40,000 gallons/year saved by reduced idling

(based on 24.36 gallons per vehicle per day)

Nearly $170,000 in fuel savings

FY 2008/09 Clean Diesel Initiative
  • Pinellas County School Board
    • Continue installation of DOCs and CCV on remaining 91 school buses eligible for retrofits
    • Pinellas County and PCSB extended Interlocal Agreement to cover additional retrofits
