Eau Claire Transit Increases Hybrid Bus Total

The City of Eau Claire will add two more hybrid buses to their fleet, for a total of five. Though the electric-diesel buses cost more than a standard bus, the two new hybrid buses will save the city more than $11,000 a year and about 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel. Hybrid buses are quieter and put out fewer air emissions. The two new buses will be added to the city’s routes next year. For more information
