hybrid buses

Apparently we now have hybrid buses as well as hybrid cars... I'm too tired to pontificate on this. I'm very much in favor of being environmentally friendly. However, I am also part of a group that is adversely affected by the quietness of these vehicles.

We have tons of hybrid buses here in Seattle, but they really aren't any quieter than the other buses. Unless I'm just not noticing...but to me, they still sound very loud!

hybrid buses
The problem is when they are just starting off after being stopped at a corner. If I am standing there waiting to cross, and the bus has been stopped and then turns in front of me at a low speed, I can't hear it because the loud engine doesn't kick in until a certain speed. I had traffic checks with hybrid cars while training with Loretta, and it really scared me.
