Buses to the rescue in New York

 The bus was the way — the only way, for many — to go this morning for people trying to get to work in the first weekday commute in Irene's aftermath.
Bus stops were crowded and lines longer than usual as commuters re-engineered their morning routines.
At 6 a.m., some people at the New Rochelle train station either hadn't heard train service was suspended or came to the station hoping that it would resume.
"They said maybe - maybe - they'll start," Roberto Valencia, 41, of New Rochelle said of the trains. "So far there's no trains."

Salem CNG buses in action

Can someone (Jason?) tell me why TriMet does not utilize compressed natural gas equipment? With diesel fuel at over 3 dollars/gallon and the natural gas equivalent at 1.75,it would make sense to convert. Am I missing something?
