Citibus to unveil new 2009 Hybrid Electric Busses

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Citibus will unveil six new Hybrid Electric busses on Tuesday, November 10th. 

The event will be held in the northeast parking lot of the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center at 11:00 a.m.

Each hybrid bus could save as much as 40% on fuel costs compared to the current fleet. The 23 passenger seat, fuel efficient busses will help improve the carbon footprint left by Citibus.

John Wilson, Citibus General Manager said "This is the first step toward reaching our goal of changing the entire Citibus fleet to hybrids."

No cost was incurred by the City of Lubbock for the new busses. Three were paid for by Federal stimulus money, two by State grants, and one from Federal Transportation Administration funds.

One of the six red and black busses will be outfitted in a special "Electricitibus" vinyl wrap designed by the Thomas Agency and printed and installed locally by The Reproduction Company.
