Green Car Congress noted Pawlenty's announcement of 150 new hybrid buses and B10 next year.

Metro Transit is retiring some 300 buses. Half of the replacement buses will be hybrid and the rest are supposedly the cleanest diesel burning models available.

The time frame is over the next 5 years. The hybrid buses are 22% more efficient and have 50% less exhaust.

Helpful back-of-the-envelope fact:

Metro Transit consumes and supplies about 10 million gallons of diesel fuel each year.
