Transit

Howard County Tran­sit oper­ates 28 hybrid vehi­cles – the Azure CitiBus – as a clean, fuel-efficient alter­na­tive to con­ven­tional shut­tle buses. These buses have effi­cient fea­tures such as engine-off at stop func­tion­al­ity and regen­er­a­tive braking.

Use of the hybrid Azure CitiBus as part of the County’s fleet improves fuel econ­omy by up to 50% while reduc­ing green­house gas emis­sions by up to 30%. This envi­ron­men­tally respon­si­ble solu­tion fur­ther saves money by reduc­ing vehi­cle main­te­nance by up to 30%.
