Electric buses

Van Buren local schools near Findlay Ohio will be looking into electric buses or other hybrid conversions for their school bus fleet.

Re: Electric buses

The local transits now advertise on their sides that they are hybrids, and have interesting roof pods . . . but they still have diesel stacks. We are getting closer.

Mining coal must have been in the Appalachians or on the "other side of the pond." My job was to go to DMV in place of my boss's customers every day after school, and stand in line to process their paperwork . . . . so now bureaucrats don't scare me all that easily.
