Baltimore rolls out hybrid buses

Baltimore will be rolling out 10 new electric-diesel hybrid buses this spring. And if it works out, 300 more will be on the road by 2012.

Eighty percent of the funding for the buses is coming from the federal government. Considering conventional diesel buses cost $370K and the hybrid costs $600K, that's quite a savings.

The buses are 20 percent more fuel efficient and can reduce emissions of particle matter up to 90 percent more than standard diesel engines, state officials said.

The buses are full hybrids, capable of all electric power at lower speeds (under 12 mph).
