From RiderInsider -

Sneak peek: Four new hybrid buses are joining the fleet

Of the 55 brand-new buses we purchased this year, four are next-generation hybrid-electric vehicles. After making the trek from the Gillig bus factory in Hayward, California, the new hybrids are now on site, and our crews are preparing them to go into service. After the buses hit the road in January, we'll be testing them for fuel efficiency and maintenance needs. This year, we began replacing our oldest buses, which are not only uncomfortable for riders and operators, they are unreliable and expensive for us to maintain.

I wonder if Trimet ever paid up on this?

Notice how they used manipulation and deceit to try to get out of this situation.

Cincinnati says NO while Portland says YES

Mark Mallory is mayor of the city of Cincinnati.Let me make something crystal clear: The city of Cincinnati is not going take money from the Metro bus system to pay for any part of the streetcar project or its operation. (Portland however has gutted its bus service to pay for all its light rail fantasies)
