Electric and double-decker buses could be a part of Tampa Bay's public transportation system sooner than you think.
Bus companies from all over the world are in Tampa Bay this week hoping everyone will get a glimpse of the future.
Two of the most talked about on display, an enormous 60-foot-long bus that runs solely on electricity and a double-decker bus that is hoping to become more than a novelty.
Ollie Nielsen says, "If you're commuting, which is very common for the Tampa Bay area, thirty to ninety minutes to work, it's a great way to ride."
The double-decker buses are currently on a trial run in New York City.
As for the electric buses, one official says he expects Tampa to be converted in 10 years.
