Broward County Transit to Introduce New 40-foot Hybrid Buses

Recommended Posts

Broward County Transit (BCT) is introducing new, 40-foot buses that consist of 28 diesel-powered and 21 hybrid-diesel/electric buses, as part of the agency’s 2013 bus replacement plan. The new buses will replace 49 of the 313 current buses in the fleet. 

“The buses offer our riders a level of comfort they deserve and are in line with our commitment to offering a more cost-effective and fuel efficient fleet,” said Tim Garling, director of Broward County Transit Division.

By the way, no this is not a CNG bus. Just to clear up the confusion. The bus was built like that.

Yeah, that bus looks identical to DART's CNG Gen IIIs, had me real confused when I first saw it! Looks like NABI is gonna be building all Gen IIIs with the roof looking like a CNG tank, or at least the hybrids. 

 

Good to see BCT getting more new buses, not a big fan of the Gen IIIs as you all know but I'm actually looking forward to seeing/riding one next time I head down there. Also great to see hybrids still being ordered.

Everyone around here buys hybrids as an "alternative" to buying CNG buses. I will say that HART's CNG fueling station will be completed later this year. They will then order CNG buses.

The bus looks that much better with the enclosure. Hope to see it in the future.

Agreed. The CNG lookalike dome is pretty cool.
