The most fuel efficient hybrid bus ever designed.

The BUSolutions project is a public-private advanced bus development initiative, created by Altair to address the needs of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and regional transit authorities.

In response to increasing fuel costs and emissions legislation, Altair ProductDesign, along with its development partners, delivered the LCO-140H, a modern bus platform with twice the fuel efficiency of a standard diesel vehicle and a 30% improvement over current electric vehicles.

Simply put, the LCO-140H is the lowest cost of ownership, most fuel-efficient hybrid bus ever designed.
