Altair unveils world's first hydraulic-hybrid transit bus

From an economic perspective, it’s the total cost that has to be considered. On that front, BUSolutions is projected to lower the cost of ownership by $170,000 per bus as compared to a conventional diesel bus. With the average local transit authority operating approximately 300 buses, the savings could reduce a city’s cost of transit bus operation by approximately $50 million.

That'd be a great thing for TriMet, seeing how we have Daimler Trucks North America to even produce them locally...

But...well...this is Portland, and who gives a damn about buses or Daimler. Oregon Iron Works created TWENTY Streetcar jobs! GO OREGON IRON WORK!
