This activity report presents the results of the The Hybrid and Electric Bus Test Program. Findings reveal that that hybrid and electric technologies can perform as well or better than comparable diesel-powered buses and within a reasonable payback period. In Latin America, where the transport sector is already the largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, several cities have been working to improve their transport systems to achieve improved air quality, better road safety, and greater social inclusion.
