Benefits of Hybrid Electric Buses
Hybrid electric buses help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, believed to contribute to global warming. They reduce particulate matter, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxide. TheRide’s process of replacing older buses with hybrids is part of its ongoing effort to minimize impacts on the environment.
Operating hybrid electric vehicles has also resulted in reducing TheRide's fuel consumption by 30% (more than 100,000 gallons).
