Austin Texas will get delivery of the first plug-in hybrid school bus on November 7th.
Here is the page that promotes the new busses.
I hope that I get one of these style busses some day. I like the idea of getting a more efficient bus and having to get fuel less frequently. This bus says it will save up to 70% of the fuel use, which would be so significant for schools. I get about 60 gallons of fuel a week, so at $3 a gallon this is $180 a week that could be reduced to like $40 a week.
Anyways…this is all great news for the environment and for school kids.
