Los Angeles Retires Last of Diesel Buses
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority retired the last diesel-fueled bus in its fleet on Wednesday morning. The MTA now operates a fleet of nearly 2,300 alternative clean fueled buses.
"Today we not only have much cleaner air but we have a world-class clean-fuel system, the world's leader. And everything that we've done, cities across the country have replicated," said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
The first of the "green" buses hit the streets of Los Angeles in 1993, nearly 20 years ago. Since the time these buses have rolled out, they've logged more than a billion miles on L.A. streets.
