Winnipeg will get "active transportation path" and two diesel-electric hybrid buses

It'll be a little easier getting around Winnipeg, Canada soon. The city, provincial and federal governments are spending millions of dollars on a "lengthy" bicycle path through the city and two diesel-electric hybrid buses. The buses are 60 feet long and articulated. The plan, announced Friday by a group of politicians, will likely benefit workers at Manitoba Hydro because of a park-and-ride site at the company's south Winnipeg location. About 2,200 employees will soon be moved to a new downtown office.
The bike path will connect The Forks with Jubilee Avenue and Pembina Highway. I'm not familiar with Winnipeg, but The Forks is where the politicians announced the funding for the buses and the "an active transportation path." Let's hope this becomes the road more traveled.
