Attack of the Hybrids
A parade of hybrid buses drove down the Nicollet Mall. According to this article from Friday's Star Tribune the city of Minneapolis Metro Transit has spent $557,000 on each hybrid bus. The people quoted in this article are all in support of the cost of purchasing 19 additional buses, possibly due to the social and commercial boost the paper could get for advocating the hybrid buses. This article seems like a puff piece, and therefore is pretty bad journalism.
