King County Metro to try out Electric Bus

Not Electric Trolley buses, but battery powered electric buses. This keeps Metro on the cutting edge of bus technology, and looking to keep making our fleet one of the greenest in the nation.

Read the official Metro News Release for more info.

Apparently something has changed since then, plus they got a grant to do it, so that may have been a game changer?
