Clean Energy to supply Tulsa CNG

Posted on April 1, 2011

Oklahoma's Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority awarded Clean Energy Fuels Corp. a contract to design, build, operate and maintain a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station to support the agency's growing fleet of CNG-powered buses and paratransit vehicles.  

Slated to open in September 2011, the new Tulsa Transit fueling facility will be equipped with 39 time-fill posts and one fast-fill CNG dispenser. The new station, located at MTTA's vehicle maintenance facility, will support the agency's accelerating program to replace 100 percent of its diesel-powered bus fleet with CNG models.

Currently, Tulsa Transit deploys 63 fixed-route buses and 49 paratransit vehicles in a 197-square-mile area that includes the communities of Tulsa, Jenks, Broken Arrow and Sand Springs. Annual ridership tops 2.8 million passenger trips.

In 2011, Tulsa Transit expects to add 35 new CNG paratransit vehicles and 15 CNG buses to its fleet, replacing diesel models as they are retired from service this year.
