The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has voted to purchase 295 40-foot compressed natural gas buses, which will be fueled by renewable natural gas (RNG), according to the latest release from NGVAmerica. The contract also includes an option for the purchase of 305 additional 40-foot CNG buses.
NGVAmerica says the buses will replace part of the aging bus fleet and signals a commitment by the transit agency, already one of the largest natural gas bus fleets in the nation, to continue using natural gas to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions in Los Angeles County.
