Assessment of Hybrid-Electric Transit Bus Technology
TRB’s Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 132: Assessment of Hybrid-Electric Transit Bus Technology explores decision-making guidelines coupled with a comprehensive life cycle cost (LCC) model designed to assist transit managers in evaluating, selecting, and implementing hybrid-electric technology options for transit buses. The LCC model allows the user to compare the total life cycle costs across several cost categories for up to 6 different “purchase scenarios.” The LCC model is contained on the accompanying CD-ROM (CRP-CD-71), with the printed version of the report and available for download as an ISO image online.
Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.
