A fleet of 25 compressed natural gas (CNG) transit buses has arrived in Kamloops, British Columbia, to be introduced into service by the end of May.

The CNG buses, costing roughly $14.8 million, were purchased through New Flyer Industries in Winnipeg, Manitoba. To help offset the initial costs associated with the purchase of the buses, FortisBC will provide funding of up to $577,500, representing 70% of the cost differential of CNG buses over diesel counterparts.

A CNG fueling station is also near completion at the Kamloops Transit Centre. The cost of the fueling station is estimated at $2.5 million.

Kamloops is the second BC Transit community to adopt CNG technology; the Regional District of Nanaimo introduced its CNG fleet in 2014.
