Terre Haute Will Fix One Hybrid Bus

Terre Haute has not had very good luck with a pair of hybrid buses.

They may have spent more time in the repair shop than on the road.

Now the company that made them is bankrupt and the busses are broke.

Now the city will have one of the buses retrofitted to run on regular gasoline while the other bus may be converted later.

The changeover will happen in Chattanooga Tennessee.

Total cost to convert one bus is $35,000 but that is still much cheaper than buying a new one.

The busses were originally paid for with federal grants.
