Michigan County Adds Three CNG Buses To Its Fleet


Michigan's Muskegon County has added three buses powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) to its fleet. According to the Muskegon Area Transit System (MATS), the new heavy-duty CNG buses began serving routes earlier this month, replacing older, diesel-powered buses.

‘MATS has been using natural gas in its seasonal trolley vehicles and small buses for nearly 10 years now, but these will be the first heavy-duty CNG buses in our fleet,’ says Transit Manager Jim Koens. ‘Compressed natural gas burns cleanly, is produced domestically and is more cost-effective than diesel fuel at this time.’
