I believe Seattle has them, now.
In 1986 I was in Dayton...a friend's wedding. His new wife was from Dayton, so they held it there.
I saw those damn things ALL OVER. I suppose, no exhaust was a benefit - not that I was really that bothered by bus exhaust - but the wires, two for each route, were over the streets like some sort of bizarre safety net. And occasionally one of the two trolley poles (power contacts) would come off, and watching the operator try to use battery power to swing that pole back in place...cringeworthy.
I can see why they went away. I can NOT see why normal buses went away. No like diesel? Many buses are sold outfitted to run on compressed natural gas.
