Clean Energy Fuels Corp., won a $10 million, multi-year procurement from New Jersey Transit, the nation’s third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit, which links major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia and provides close to 223 million passenger trips each year.

The procurement includes rebuilding a large compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station, as well as additional garage modifications and the repair and maintenance of facilities through 2020. NJ Transit is expected to operate a fleet of 147 CNG commuter buses estimated to consume approximately 2 million gasoline gallon equivalents (GGEs) each year.

Clean Energy also signed other agreements across the transit markets, including the construction of new stations and extended maintenance and fueling contracts.

  •     SP+, a provider of professional parking management, has signed a 5-year fueling agreement with Clean Energy to fuel 16 CNG buses for a new Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility located at the San Diego International Airport. The buses, owned by the San Diego Airport Authority, are anticipated to consume approximately 27,000 GGEs per month and will fuel with Redeem™, Clean Energy’s renewable natural gas (RNG) derived from biomethane.
  •     On Feb. 10, 2016, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority opened its Division 13 facility, a $6 million private CNG fueling station built by Clean Energy. The new facility, which will be maintained by Clean Energy for the next 10 years, will fuel approximately 175 buses, which are expected to consume a total of 2 million GGEs of CNG annually.
  •     Clean Energy extended its maintenance contract with Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District (Santa Cruz Metro) for an additional 5 years. The maintenance services support a station that fuels Santa Cruz Metro’s 100 CNG buses used throughout the county.
  •     Clean Energy customer MV Transportation was awarded a CNG bus contract with Los Angeles World Airports. The 14 CNG buses will fuel exclusively at Clean Energy stations.
  •    The City of Long Beach recently announced the purchase of over 100 additional light- and medium-duty CNG vehicles that will fuel at two Clean Energy stations in the city.

Natural gas fuel costs less than gasoline or diesel, depending on local market conditions. The use of natural gas fuel also reduces greenhouse gas emissions up to 21%, according to Clean Energy. In addition, nearly all natural gas consumed in North America is produced in North America.
