That is a very good step in the right direction. I hope the A pillars of the bus are stronger than they look. I wonder what warranty Tri-met will get from the manufacture. The highest I’ve seen are 10 year 150,000 miles warranties on hybrid/electric vehicles in California-emissions equivalent states, which Oregon I believe is one.

Bravado! I mostly love the new shoe smell as I enter these, what I like to call, space shuttles, and now that I know they are hybrid-oriented, I can surely ride with ease. Thank you Trimet and PCC!
