Default Ride an SUB not an SUV

Hey, be smart. You are part of the solution, not part of the problem.
And you save the buck. Dinosaurs are a thing of the past and the
little furry animals are here to stay.

There are two versions of it...

and bus:

Heaven Help Bus
A visit to Iceland spurs dreams of a hydrogen future

The loneliness of the long-distance rider.I have seen the future, and
it works.

The 111 bus rolls quietly up to the Mjodd terminal in eastern
Reykjavik at 11:19 a.m., and I climb aboard. For 45 minutes, we cruise
through the suburbs and then to the central square downtown, picking
up and discharging eight passengers along the way. Fuel cells that
would have filled the space of several passenger seats five years ago
are now small enough to fit in the roof panels. And out the exhaust
pipe: a trickle of water.

http://www.grist.org/comments/soapbo...n-hydrogenbus/

I have a dream...that someday buses will not pollute. Actually we
could make it happen now much easier than having all the cars be
replaced with hybrid. Just change the fleet of buses to hydrogen or
some other technologies out there.

We can make it happen with THE REVOLUTION. Coming soon...

Too optimistic. Somebody, somewhere is probably burning coal or oil to
make the electricity to electrolyze the water to make the Hydrogen.
It only really works if the electricity comes from wind, solar, hydro,
or, dare I say it, NUculear (Bush pronunciation).

Anything which makes a bus more efficient would make a car even more
efficient than the bus. Right now transit buses waste fuel big time.

You will notice that there was no mention of the obvious. If you use the
electricity without converting it to anything it's clean (Hydrogen is not as
clean) then you do get what you want. Shoot, even the Feds recognise that
at tax time. Like the Hybrids (which are actually dismall failures for a
replacement, just a stop gap) you get tax credits if you buy an electric
car. Check out Portland, Ore for being Electric Friendly. But until
everyone gets their noses out of the Petro or Carbon fuel BS don't look for
it to go much further. Electrics now have the same range as the "Hydrogens"
and "Fuel Cells" and are a danged sight easier to maintain without going
boom in the night. Yes, Gertrude, Hydrogen is very, very dangerous.

Not all, I think I read somewhere where a city went to Electrics.

Only if nobody rides them. When I was a kid in the Chicago area I could
go anywhere on a weekend with a travel buddy of mine. We took the train
into downtown, then the 'el' ( hard to explain), and over/underground
subway system. Then there were electric trolley buses, and finally
regular buses to get us within walking distance.
And, yes, any one of those modes of transportation sucks fuel big time
if nobody rides them. If they are full they are a good thing. SUV's and
single occupant soccer moms have messed up the equation.

Does your proclamation factor in the extra time those cars would be on
the road if each of those morning rush hour transit buses were
replaced by 80-100 cars? Or the fuel cost cars themselves, for that
matter?

And their parking, in terms of distance and time and cost? How's a
fuel cell going to help those things? Heck, a lot of 'efficient' fuel
systems aren't even allowed to park in high-density underground lots.

Transit buses may be inefficient in some places, but in others, like
my downtown, you have to look at the cars and ask "why bother?"

Fastest to slowest in Toronto for distances between 6 and 100 blocks:
Subway, bus, bicycle, streetcar, car. In really bad weather, insert
"pedestrian" between bike and streetcar (up to 50 blocks, anyway.)
