Washington's King County Metro runs trolley buses as a major portion* of
their Public Transit infrastructure within Seattle. Plus, they run
dual-power buses (part of the route is run with diesel power, part with
overhead electric power).
(* Could be as much as a fifth of their routes)
(from their website: "Metro operates a fleet of about 1,300 vehicles --
including standard and articulated coaches, electric trolleys,
dual-powered buses, hybrid diesel-electric buses and streetcars[..]"
