      Phoenix to Buy 120 CNG New Flyers by Rich Piellisch Feb 11, 2013

      “Compressed natural gas has become the public transit industry’s standard for natural gas powered vehicles,” department director Neal Young says in a release.

      Arizona’s Phoenix Public Transit Department, which operates the nation’s largest fleet of liquefied natural gas buses with 305 units in service under the Valley Metro badge, is shifting over to compressed natural gas, with deliveries of 120 replacement buses from New Flyer Industries expected to begin in November.

      Also by November, the first of three existing LNG fueling sites will be modified with LCNG equipment to accommodate the CNG vehicles. Fuel will continued to be supplied as LNG via tanker truck, says transit service operations Jesus Sapien.

      ...bus deliveries are to be complete by spring 2014. Phoenix notes that its initial investment in LNG buses and fueling equipment came in the 1990s...Phoenix has 465 Valley Metro buses. Most are natural gas-fueled with about a third running on ultra-low sulfur diesel.
