With London's electric double-decker buses on the streets and three NYC electric buses rolled out in New York Cityâ€"with 87 more to come in 2010â€"there is no doubt that the new year will be all about green commutation.

Created by DesignLine, the NYC electric buses are green from the inside out. They are powered with lithium-ion batteries charged by turbine engines, and feature LED-paneled interiors for light. The NYC electric buses also don't make much noise. In fact, they are “quiet as tomb,” according to Doreen M. Frasca, an appointee to the board of New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
