The Cover Story:

Canada has reached the 35-year milestone of transit buses running on compressed natural gas.  The Hamilton Street Railway was the first implementer of CNG.  Kevin Nicol provides a thorough, two-part look at the history and current status of this alternative fuel.  We also have an update on the Vancouver trolley bus operations during construction of the Broadway subway, and a reflective note on the designer of the PAYE (Pay as you Enter) streetcar configuration.
