A hybrid bus on the road in Seattle

By Tom Stephens

This morning we announced great news in Seattle: King County has ordered up to 500 new GM hybrid-powered city buses over the next five years. With the 214 buses that have already been operating there since 2004, that could give the county a fleet of 714 GM hybrid-articulated buses, the largest in the world.

Compared to conventional diesel buses, we estimate a hybrid bus fleet that big will save more than 1.1 million gallons of fuel each year and prevent more than 11,300 metric tons of CO2 emissions ? and that?s just in King County.
