Los Angeles Bus Fleet Now Cleanest In The Nation
The city still known for its smog will not have its buses to blame - the last of its diesel-fueled ones retired Jan. 12 in a celebration. All but 7 of the 2,221 buses will be compressed-natural-gas powered; electric and gas-electric the remainder.
LA can rightfully boast having the cleanest bus fleet of any major transit agency in the nation. There are "a couple of dozen smaller transit agencies, including those in Oxnard and Santa Barbara, that have already replaced their entire fleets."
