Columbia and USC officials introduced today a hydrogen-powered Ford bus that they hope will be in use for the next year to transport handicapped students for one year.
The bus is a partnership between Ford, USC, Columbia and the federal Department of Energy. If the deal is finalized, Ford will own the bus, USC will provide the driver and the insurance, Columbia will provide the fuel and the Department of Energy will help pay for the lease.
The 12-month program is part of the citys goal of converting all of its fleet into alternative-fuel vehicles by 2015, said Michal Koman, the university sustainability director.
