On Tuesday, 10 new buses fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG) arrived at River Valley Transit (EVT), a mass-transit carrier serving Lycoming County, Pa.

According to the state’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), RVT purchased the buses in part using funding from DEP’s Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant (AFIG) Program.

During Tuesday’s event, Marcus Kohl, DEP’s north-central regional director, along with DEP staff, joined representatives from RVT and from Gillig, the manufacturer of the CNG buses, to discuss the initiative and its environmental benefits.
