The Moss Point Public Schools will equip its entire fleet of 31 buses with diesel oxidation catalysts and implement anti-idling policies. The Moss Point School System has a large percentage of older buses that serve sensitive populations. These buses will remain in the fleet for a number of years before being replaced with cleaner, low emitting buses. Additionally, the school system will develop and implement an anti-idling policy to reduce emissions from school buses while they are parked at schools.
