Bus to the Future
Via Bill Hobbs, I found a Bill Hobbs post on an interesting prospect for the city, namely a hydrogen fuel-cell plant that would help revive our manufacturing heritage, albeit in the new energy sector.
The linked article indicates that the story ran in our daily paper this week, and I missed it. I also missed the bus, which was apparently here around the same time as President Bush.
My favorite part: this bus "emits only water in liquid and vapor form" and can travel 250 miles before needing a charge.
How long is a typical CARTA route per day? The downtown electric shuttles are great, but an expansion would be even nicer. I doubt the city could afford these experimental vehicles, though. We'd have to wait until some early adopters helped bring the price into our range.
