Abstract A comparison of operating costs for buses used in a transit system are investigated considering four alternative fuels: biodiesel, compressed natural gas, methanol, and diesel. Rust's `nested fixed point' maximum likelihood estimation algorithm is used in this comparison. The algorithm considers both tangible costs such as fuel, maintenance, and infrastructure, and intangible costs associated with different levels of bus engine operating reliability under alternative fuels. Using data… CONTINUE READING
