San Diego Transit Buying More than 500 CNG Buses


Fleets & Fuels - December 20, 2012

The San Diego Met­ro­pol­i­tan Tran­sit Sys­tem is buy­ing up to 350 com­pressed nat­ural gas fueled 40-foot low-floor buses made by bus man­u­fac­turer Gillig and up to 165 of bus maker New Flyer’s 60-foot low-floor artic­u­lated CNG buses through 2017. The tran­sit sys­tem will be invest­ing more than $343 mil­lion for these fleet acqui­si­tions. This will put the agency on pace to retire the last of its remain­ing diesel buses.
