Altair to unveil hydraulic hybrid transit bus

Troy, MI-based Altair will unveil what the company calls the world’s first series hydraulic hybrid transit bus Sept. 7 at the company’s Troy headquarters.

The LCO-140H was developed under the BUSolutions program by Altair. BUSolutions is a collaborative effort between public and private entities to research, develop and commercialize advanced transit bus systems that are significantly more fuel efficient, have lower operating and maintenance costs, are competitively priced and can operate without updating the infrastructure of existing transit authorities. BUSolutions is projected to lower the cost of ownership by more than $150,000 per bus as compared to a conventional diesel bus.

BUSolutions has been funded by multiple federal and state programs including the Federal Transit Authority (FTA) and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC). For more information, visit www.altairbusolutions.com.
