This talking, electric, self-driving bus is coming to a city near you

I love the technology of the 2000s. I'll spend my golden years marveling at all of it.

This bus still has a petroleum tail to it.... It is all good that it is electric and gives no emissions; providing the electricity is emission-free (I do not want to turn this thread into a climate change thread). Even if this bus is recharged from a renewable source, it has a definite petroleum tail because the plastics, rubber (synthetic), and composites it is constructed from are all made using oil. Something the 'keep it in the ground' folks need to consider.

Anything is better than those enormous empty buses spewing noxious diesel fumes.

Me too. I believe the issue is that in order for a transit system to get federal grants, the buses must conform to certain specifications. Some buses in Tallahassee need to be full size, they circulate in and around our four schools of higher education and are depended on by a lot of students. Most could be the size pictured and still have plenty of room.

You two are certainly the experts on short buses.
