Clean Energy to expand, maintain TransLink CNG station

Posted on March 4, 2009

The South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority, TransLink, awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a long-term contract to expand and maintain the compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel station that supports TransLink’s current fleet of 60 clean-burning CNG buses.

Located at the agency’s Port Coquitlam Transit Centre, in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the Clean Energy-operated, high-volume station will be upgraded and reconfigured to accommodate potential fleet growth of up to 125 buses.

Clean Energy has been under contract to provide CNG fueling services to TransLink since 1998, with total CNG bus fleet consumption now topping 1.2 million U.S. gallons annually.

TransLink buses provide 700,000 passenger trips daily on 201 fixed routes in Metro Vancouver’s 695-square-mile service area.
