CNG for Buses, Transit Fleets

compressed natural gas buses

Make Your City Green

As local governing bodies continue to search for ways to improve both their budget and environmental impact, many transit authorities turn to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as their fuel of choice. Abundant, domestic and clean, CNG is a clear choice as a transportation fuel for a transit system. CNG’s inherently stable price coupled with federal and state level incentives creates an added advantage to CNG adoption, making it easy to meet a city’s unique budgetary and sustainability needs.

Solutions that Save

A turnkey partnership with Trillium for fueling and maintenance infrastructure can enhance your return on the investment of transitioning to an alternative fuel. Trillium provides transit agencies better performance at low prices and allows the cost of fueling infrastructure to be amortized over time through fueling contracts. This alleviates the burden of capital cost for CNG stations and guarantees operational excellence.

CNG Reliability

CNG bus propulsion is a safe, mature technology that performs on par with diesel buses. CNG is primarily composed of methane, the cleanest burning fossil fuel, so CNG buses do not require the use of complex and costly Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) or a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) after treatment systems. Many transit maintenance directors say they expect the long-term cost of maintaining CNG buses to be lower than new diesel buses and the service reliability of the propulsion systems of current generation CNG buses to increase in comparison to diesel bus reliability.
