The CTA says it will be getting 58 more of the "accordion-style" hybrid buses, paid for with $49 million in federal stimulus money.The buses are expected to be delivered this fall from a Canadian company.

The CTA took over 200 of the so-called articulated busses off the road in February because of a safety concern.

The transit agency says the hybrid technology used in the new buses will cut fuel and maintenance costs.
