Brighton is investing in Hybrid Buses (manufactured by Alexander Dennis) which can run solely on electric power for a limited distances. The buses also implement Geo-Fencing which uses the GPS system to ensure the bus switches to electric power in critical areas to avoid noise and pollution. In Brighton these buses will switch to electric mode in the town centre.
Hybrid buses are now used widely; although they can be viewed as a bridging technology to a fully electric or hydrogen powered future, they do have immediate benefits.
