The CTA has approved the purchase of 100 new accordion-style buses.

They were left over from a contract help by the Seattle Transit System. The CTA will pay New Flyer of America $80 million for 67 clean-diesel buses and 33 hybrid-electric buses.

Seattle's transit system bought 715 of the buses but did not exercise its option on 100 more.
