BUSolutions FY09 Advanced Transit Research

This project is a continuation of the BUSolutions project with a new direction to include a Series Hydraulic Hybrid powertrain. It is a joint effort of Altair Engineering, Inc. and Automation Alley to provide a transit bus that significantly increases fuel economy while reducing weight, operating, and maintenance costs, thereby addressing America's energy and emissions challenges as well as the needs of U.S. urban transit authorities. The basic bus chassis, body, and other subsystems are continued from the previous BUSolutions projects MI-26-7006, MI-26-7010, MI-04-7001, and MI-26-7012.
