New Hybrid Buses to Be Deployed in Lawrence

The city of Lawrence is about to deploy the first hybrid diesel-electric technology buses in the state. The city has purchased three, 40-foot-long buses, and is looking forward to saving money on fuel and maintenance once they’re running. Transportation Director Bob Nugent says riders may not realize they’re in a hybrid vehicle, because of how the buses sound.

The hybrid buses are not going into service right away. Drivers are training on them now, and the official rollout for riders is scheduled for August 22nd.
