Did you Hear? NYC is Bailing Out on Hybrid Buses

NYC has about 1677 hybrid buses out of a total fleet  of 5719 vehicles.  Unfortunately the cost of maintaining those hybrid engines is very high, and the five year warranty is running out.   The “green”  engines have proven unreliable, and the city is can’t afford to pay for replacements.

The city stopped purchasing hybrid buses three years ago.  There are plans to retrofit 389 of those existing  buses with DIESEL ENGINES!
