There is resistance in Harrisburg to giving transit the money it needs. If the state gives too little, there will be service cutbacks.
Hybrid buses reduce diesel fuel consumption, helping cut air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. A new braking system on trains recovers and stores energy normally lost when the train slows. Bus drivers have been told not to idle their engines. SEPTA recycles.
