Choosing the Right Fuels and Vehicles for Mexico City's Bus Fleet
EMBARQ’s work in Mexico co-funded a large World Bank/Global Environment Facility grant called Introduction of Climate Friendly Measures in the Transport Sector. Componente 3 of that project tested the performance of a range of different technologies in the high-altitude, stop-and-go conditions of Mexico City’s traffic. The results of the study showed that, in Mexico City, diesel buses running on ultra low sulfur diesel performed better than hybrid buses running on the same fuel and standard buses running on compressed natural gas. The findings of the study helped guide Mexico City officials in their objective of purchasing the most cost-effective buses for their fleet.
