Is TriMet Getting Some Hybrid Lift Vehicles?

via Streetsblog:

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)
Amount: $5,000,000
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?
