Clean Energy Fuels Corp. secured a new 10-year contract from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) to upgrade, operate and maintain CNG bus fueling facilities supporting two Metro operating divisions.
Over the next 12 months, Clean Energy will reconfigure and upgrade CNG station compressor equipment at Metro stations that supply CNG bus fleets deployed in the agency's Los Angeles Central and South Bay divisions. Between the two divisions, the CNG fuel requirement is expected to exceed nine million gallons per year.
Metro currently operates North America's largest CNG-powered transit bus fleet. The agency's more than 2,500 clean-burning CNG buses comprise 95 percent of its overall fleet.
