Hybrid Bus Issues in Honolulu

In Honolulu, a fleet of hybrid buses around town in an effort to cut down on pollution and gas use.

The city purchased 40 standard 40-foot buses in 2006 and 10 articulated extra-long hybrid buses in 2004. And they plan on buying 10 more. And the recent 'stimulus package' is putting aside some money to buy about 59 hybrid buses at the tune of $41.5 million.

But there have been issues with the program.

Apparently the forty hybrid buses have suffered 10 breakdowns in the past 10 months while traveling up and down the Pali. The bus engines had been improperly calibrated and the batteries were being overcharged, which caused them to break down.

The problem has been solved.
