I haven’t heard anything about this locally, but this DOT document (PDF) contains a fairly cryptic item:
Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet)
Project: Transit Vehicle Replacement (Mini-Hybrid)
TriMet will use funds to replace buses in its fleet that are beyond their useful lives with minihybrid technology buses.
Or am I misunderstanding what “Mini-Hybrid” means?10 Comments
