      Re: Transit agencies weigh in on alternative fuel buses

      Photo shows a CNG transit bus fueling in Eugene Oregon while being delivered to British Columbia. Bus takes an 80 gge fill for a range of 434 miles (that's 725 km for you in Canada!) BCTransit will receive 100 CNG buses in total which include the fleet of CNG buses now operating in the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN), and a second fleet which will be in service by spring of 2015 in the City of Kamloops.

      In 2013, BC Transit and the Regional District of Nanaimo began building a new Compressed Natural Gas fuelling station at the Nanaimo Transit Centre.

      Transit Tech, of St. Cloud, Minnesota, handled the bus delivery. Its drivers are employees, not contracted, and are located in North Dakota, Minnesota, Texas, and Florida. Transittec will pickup or deliver a bus to any location in the US or Canada. Transittec delivers only buses: New or used, City Transit Buses or Coaches. They are delivered the way you would want: Washed, Fueled, Clean inside and Out.
