Introduction

Public transit is often called upon as a measure to reduce environmental impacts of travel, both by consolidating travelers from single-occupant vehicles into one environmentally-efficient vehicle, and by using modern technology for cleaner propulsion. Many technologies have been adapted for bus and rail transit since their advent in the late 1800s, including electricity and battery, natural gas, and hydrogen.

Propulsion Technologies

Standard Fuels: Gasoline and Diesel

Gasoline, diesel, ultra-low sulfur, biodiesel

Natural Gases

LNG, CNG

Electric

Overhead lines, in-ground lines, battery power, solar

Hydrogen Fuel Cell
