The RTS is my 2nd fav bus after the Flxible Metro-B! RTS' ROCK!!:cool:

Any way, how on earth can i tell if an MCI is a hybrid or not since there is no battery compartment on the roof? If there is a sticker, then i missed it.:P

A basic internet search provided no information other that NJT for opperating the hybrid RTS, however wikipedia has a long list of transit systems using hybrid electric buesses.

The MTA had a hybrid bus, but it didn't last a year here (6360). NJT's are from 2002, but entered service in 2003 after a national tour. (4003 got over 8 mpg.)

I guess you would have to judge by the fleet numbers! The hybrids I've noticed are the 4000 series buses, the Diesel's are usually 7000-8000 series(NJT)

There are only 7 hybrids in all of NJT: 3 RTS buses (serving Mercer County) and 4 MCIs (Raritan Valley).
