    CNG Projects To Stimulate California's Economy Source - NGV Global Friday, 07 March 2008 USA, California
    California Gov. Schwarzenegger has announced $394 million for transit projects to keep the State's economy moving while at the same time protecting the environment. Among the stimulus packages is funding for projects to "improve air quality by taking cars off the road and further encourage the use of public transit, benefiting California's environment for years to come," said California Environmental Protection Agency Secretary Linda Adams. Some of the notable compressed natural gas (CNG) projects approved for funding are:
    • Fresno - $2.5 million to the city of Fresno to purchase cleaner CNG buses to replace older buses that emit more air pollutants.
    • Los Angeles - funds for purchasing 95 new CNG buses
    • Orange County - $25.2 million to the Orange County Transportation Authority to build CNG fueling infrastructure in Garden Grove, Anaheim and Irvine, and to purchase paratransit vehicles for persons with disabilities.

    But will those stations be open to the public?

      I really don't know, but I could hook you up with the Clean Cities Coordinator for that area and perhaps she could push for that. They are all about infrastructure and would no doubt be all for having at least one pump available to the public. In fact they could probably be a factor in making that happen, assuming it's not part of the plan now.

        this is just a assumption. but Garden Grove and Anaheime may both be the upgrades going on at both the So Cal stations. and Irvine might be dealing with the switch to CNG from LNG at the OCTD yard in Irvine.

          I keep wondering why the Anaheim station has not gone online yet.

          If they also rebuild the Garden Grove station then it's good by to CE unless I have no other choice.
