Flint MTA Welcomes Slew of New CNG Buses

The Mass Transportation Authority (MTA) of Flint, Mich., recently received 13 new compressed natural gas (CNG) buses.

The CNG fleet will be fueled at a newly built public-private station located at the MTA’s Grand Blanc Service Center and owned by Consumers Energy. The 40-foot buses will be placed throughout the MTA’s fixed-route system serving the greater Flint area.

Notably, 22 more CNG buses will be arriving for the MTA within the next 10 months. The 35 new vehicles are placing 24-year-old diesel units that “well-beyond” their useful life, according to the MTA.

“We are extremely proud of our progress to attain a 100 percent alternative fuel fleet while working to reduce the carbon footprint and creating a clean operating environment,” says Ed Benning, MTA’s general manager and CEO.
