Transit Fleet to Roll Out 25 Compressed Natural Gas Buses


BC Transit will be deploying 25 new compressed natural gas (CNG) buses in Kamloops, British Columbia, joining the Regional District of Nanaimo as the second BC Transit fleet to make the conversion to natural gas.

The company says natural gas utility FortisBC will provide up to $875,000 in order to help defray the upfront cost of Kamloops' CNG-powered buses.

‘Policy changes made by the provincial government helped make this possible and allow fleet operators like BC Transit to take advantage of [a] cleaner-burning, lower-priced fuel that is abundant in B.C.,’ says John Walker, president and CEO of FortisBC.

BC Transit expects the new CNG buses to be in service by spring 2015.
