Officials with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and Cambria County Transit Authority (CamTran) celebrated the opening of the commonwealth’s newest compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Johnstown, Pa.

The facility is the first of 29 new CNG stations Love’s Trillium CNG will design, build, and maintain for numerous transit authorities in Pennsylvania as part of a public-private partnership (P3) contract PennDOT awarded to the company last year. The P3 project will provide CNG to more than 1,600 buses at transit agencies across Pennsylvania, including six at the CamTran location. CamTran currently has three CNG buses and three more are being ordered.

The station is open 24/7 and features two CNG dispensers. It will primarily serve CamTran’s fleet of CNG buses, but it’s also open to the public, including light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Six of the 29 facilities in the P3 project will be open to the public.

According to the Alternative Fuels Data Center, the new CNG stations will increase the number of public CNG facilities in Pennsylvania to 52. The public fueling stations will be strategically placed throughout the commonwealth to give fleets and motorists convenient access to more CNG locations.

The next public facility at Rabbittransit in York, Pa., is scheduled to open this June. Additional public facilities are scheduled to open at Indiana County Transit Authority, the County of Lackawanna Transit System, the New Castle Area Transit Authority, and Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority.
