Hybrid diesel buses coming to San Francisco
Mayor Gavin Newsom said San Francisco spent from 2001 to 2003 evaluating different alternative energy buses before ordering the Orion VIIs. "Our goal is to be 100 percent emission-free in municipal transportation by 2020," Newsom said in an article on CNET. CNET says that the Orion VII buses (4.5 miles per gallon) cost around $488,000 each, compared to about $260,000 for a standard diesel bus (3.5 miles per gallon).
