Seems among the wisest ways to spend VW settlement money to me. They could have put in a few chargers or something, but I don't think that's the responsibility of government.

Cleary the bus is converted from a regular body though, as there's no reason to have a huge engine bay in front. Would be better to have a flat nose (for visibility) and no mirrors. Would be neat if follow up stories were offered once these have been in service for a while.
