Busjack Posted April 23, 2011 Author Report Share Posted April 23, 2011 I think I know what the Electric Test Buses will be.... New Flyers!!! There's a company called Electric Fuel Transportation Corp. that takes standard-sized 40' Buses and mounts the EFTC Zinc-Air Fuel Cell into the Bus. FR's. .... Theoretically that's fine, especially if they met their claim that the batteries could run a transit bus for 8 hours and be swapped out for recharge. However, I got suspicious when they said they were putting them on an RTS bus, which no longer exists, so, as usual, I cleaned up the url and went to the home page. Their Electric Vehicle page says "The EV program is presently inactive." Also, the last press release is Nov. 2004, and I am sure battery technology has changed since then. So other than the swappable battery idea, I don't think this is it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
