Until 1960, one could also ride zero-emission buses in Brooklyn (OK, they DID require overhead wires!) Wink

If a true BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) system is ever built in New York, it would seem a good venue for electric buses......

.......In discussing "electric buses" mention must be made of PSNJ's dual-powered once-commonplace "ASV" (All Service Vehicle) which served several New Jersey cities from the mid-1930's until 1948.

Looking like a conventional "straight" trolleybus, these unique vehicles also were equipped with gasoline engines, allowing the to operate off-wire (this came in quite handy when detours were encountered); ASV's were also used on many charter runs, including runs to the 1939 World's Fair at Flushing Meadows.

The modern, dual-powered buses that run in Boston (Silver Line) and in Seattle, are indeed the great-grandchildren of the original PSNJ vehicles.......
