The agency currently operates 438 hybrid electric buses and coaches, with both Allison and BAE Systems drives, out of an overall fleet of approximately 1,240.

Those Greenlink CNG buses you see around the hotels and convention center? There are six, Peck says, operated by Houston Metro on behalf of a downtown business association.
