Roosevelt Island Hybrid Transit Bus

This was easily the biggest hybrid at the Tour de Sol this year.

The hybrid buses in service on Roosevelt Island are low-floor, kneeling and wheelchair ramp equipped. The box on the roof holds the batteries.

It still looks cramped, but the word is these buses are easier to work on.
