My friend from school who works for Metro, or local mass transit authority, laughs all the time about when the dual fuel "clean" buses broke down and had to be rescued by a older diesel support vehicle (usually a 1990s era F350) or, worse, towed back to the shop by an even older recovery vehicle (some of these are from the 1970s) AND necessitate putting one of the older standby diesel buses back in service on the route to keep people moving.

They had pretty much a 100% failure rate of some sort early on, so bad they pulled the plug on those particular models. We were a trial city (well, STL was, I do not actually live there) and the other handful of cities that were trials for them had similar results.
