Cummins to equip L.A., San Diego

Posted on February 7, 2013

Cummins Westport Inc. (CWI) is supplying engines for two of the largest natural gas transit fleet orders in North America to date.

In January, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) announced its plans to order 550 New Flyer Xcelsior natural gas buses, powered with the CWI ISL G 8.9 liter engine, to be deployed in 2014 and 2015, with an option to purchase an additional 350 buses in 2016 for both its own fleet and contract operators. Metro has one of the largest transit fleets in North America.

In December, the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) announced the decision to purchase up to 350 Gillig 40-foot low floor buses and 118 New Flyer 60-foot low floor articulated buses, all powered with the CWI ISL G 8.9L. MTS will receive 47 articulated buses and 50 40-foot buses in 2013, with another 50 per year being delivered to replace buses in the current compressed natural gas fueled fleet over the following four years.
