Trillium Expands CNG Presence with New Oklahoma Partnerships
Trillium Partners with Oklahoma City EMBARK, Tulsa Transit Authority to Improve Air Quality, Traffic Congestion
HOUSTON, April 1, 2019 - Trillium, one of the nation's leading providers of alternative fuels systems and renewable fuels and member of the Love's Family of Companies, today announced its recently awarded partnerships with Oklahoma City EMBARK and Tulsa Transit, Oklahoma's largest urban transit systems. The partnerships reiterate Trillium's dedication to providing reliable and clean fueling solutions to fleets across the country.
"Oklahoma is a state rooted in the pioneering spirit, and I am thrilled to see multiple communities renewing their commitment to providing clean and reliable fueling solutions through Trillium," said Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium. "These new partnerships will help improve Oklahoma's air quality, ease traffic congestion and promote the benefits of using public transportation in a rapidly growing state."
Trillium was recently awarded the contract to build the private compressed natural gas (CNG) station for EMBARK's bus fleet, which will provide clean fuel for the city's buses. Construction on the new station begins this month, with plans to open this fall on South May Ave. in Oklahoma City. In addition to providing bus services, EMBARK offers ferry transit, bike share, vanpool, streetcar and downtown parking solutions to the Oklahoma City area.
"Providing reliable, cost effective and sustainable transportation is extremely important to us and we're excited to partner with Trillium to further our commitment," said Jason Ferbrache, director of EMBARK. "We aim to operate entirely on the alternative fuel by 2025."
Trillium also recently finalized its contract to take over the operations and maintenance of Tulsa Transit's existing CNG station, which currently provides fuel for the city's bus fleet. Tulsa Transit services nearly 200 square miles of Tulsa and surrounding areas such as Jenks, Sand Springs and Broken Arrow.
"We are excited to enter into this partnership with Trillium to maintain one of our most important assets," said Randy Cloud, maintenance director for Tulsa Transit. "With 70 percent of our fleet currently operating on CNG and future plans to add more CNG vehicles, the reliability of our fueling station is critical to our ability to provide service to Tulsa and surrounding communities."
