A new all-electric mobile learning bus has been added to this very cool preschool learning project launched by the Vail Valley Foundation’s Youth Power365 project.
The Power365 project roams Vail Valley, attending community events, offering learning opportunities for preschool children who may not have the opportunity to attend formal preschool due to the COVID-19 pandemic and/or financial constraints.
The acquisition of a new electric bus to their fleet of mobile learning centers offers the chance for kids to learn important skills prior to entering kindergarten, with zero emissions.
“We are pleased to see our all-electric vehicle platform being used to provide early childcare programs for Eagle County’s low-income families. The all-electric vehicle will enable operation in a quiet, emission-free manner,” said Robert Kim, director of Winnebago Industries Specialty Vehicle Division.
As reported in the Vail Daily, “the new Magic Bus is expected to see up to 85% operation and maintenance cost savings over a similar gas-powered vehicle.”
