New York City Transit Hybrid Electric Buses
Since 1998 the Fleet Test and Evaluation team has worked with New York City Transit to study the performance of diesel and compressed natural gas hybrid electric buses. The evaluations cover three sets of hybrid electric buses (prototype, Gen. I, and Gen. II) manufactured by Orion Industries, equipped with BAE propulsion systems, and operated by New York City Transit.
The results of these evaluations are featured in the following documents, which are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs.

- BAE/Orion Hybrid Electric Buses at New York City Transit: A Generational Comparison
- New York City Transit (NYCT) Hybrid (125 Order) and CNG Transit Buses: Final Evaluation Results
