Hwa Jong (Rich) Lee ENGR 13100 Section 015 Team 10 Date: 9/28/10 Hybrid-Diesel Bus and CNG Transit Bus Hybrid bus technology is the same technology used in hybrid cars and trucks, with options for both parallel and series drive train designs. These buses use similar technology, like electric motors, regenerative braking, and battery storage. The purpose of this report is to compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of both the Hybrid-Diesel Bus and CNG Transit Bus, and comment with a conclusion from which of the bus would contribute the company the most. *Cost: Looking at the price for Hybrid-Diesel and Compressed Natural Gas, Compressed Natural Gas has a more benefit towards the company, in which is 200,000 dollars cheaper than Hybrid-Diesel buses. Hybrid buses can cost up to $500,000, a significant increase over a standard diesel transit bus, the cost of which is closer to $300,000. Natural gas buses, a lower- emission alternative to conventional diesel transit buses, are generally $20,000 to $50,000 more than a diesel bus.
