Calif.'s SunLine wins EPA 'Clean Air' award

Posted on June 18, 2010

Thousand Palms, Calif.-based SunLine Transit Agency received an award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, which annually recognizes and honors outstanding visionary efforts by individuals and organizations that have undertaken risks in innovation, resulting in improving the environment by making progress in achieving cleaner air.

SunLine was one of 14 organization recipients out of 124 applicants to receive the award, winning in the category of "Clean Air Technology."

The agency's "Road to Hydrogen" tells the story of SunLine's commitment to alternative fuel technologies, focusing on zero-emission hydrogen-fueled buses and infrastructure.

SunLine recently received its sixth generation hydrogen-fuel bus, which is one of three hydrogen fueled vehicles currently providing service in the Valley. In addition, SunLine was the first transit agency to own and operate a public hydrogen generation and dispensing station, SunFuels. The station is a part of Governor Schwarzenegger's California Hydrogen Highway.
