Pace looks at environmentally friendly buses

PACE board members got a look Wednesday afternoon at a bus powered by compressed natural gas.

The transit agency board was briefed about the environmental and economic benefits of the vehicle.

PACE says the bus costs almost twice as much as the current diesel buses in their fleet.

Expanding hybrid technology is also being explored. PACE already has two full-sized hybrid busses and 10 hybrid para-transit vans.
