Officials with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and rabbittransit in York, Pa., welcomed the commonwealth’s newest public compressed natural gas (CNG) station at a ribbon cutting. The new facility is the second public CNG station Love’s Trillium CNG designed, built, and maintains for numerous transit authorities in Pennsylvania as part of a public-private partnership (P3) PennDOT awarded to the company last year.

The P3 project will provide CNG to more than 1,600 buses at transit agencies across Pennsylvania. rabbittransit has one CNG bus, and eight additional CNG buses will be delivered next month. The project benefits the public by providing cleaner air to the community and consumers with more public CNG facilities.

“We are pleased to work with Trillium CNG on bringing a CNG fueling station under our P3 arrangement to transit agencies across Pennsylvania, including here in York,” said Toby Fauver, PennDOT’s deputy secretary, multimodal transportation. “This innovative program will help foster the use of this cleaner-burning fuel that will make a difference for air quality while helping transit agencies save money through lower fuel costs.”

The new station in York was primarily built to meet the needs of rabbittransit’s growing fleet of CNG buses, but is also open to the public 24/7. The station provides service to vehicles of all sizes, including light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks. Six of the 29 facilities in the P3 project will be open to the public. The first public facility opened in April in Johnstown, Pa., at the Cambria County Transit Authority. Another private facility for Mid Mon Valley Transit in Donora, Pa., opened this month.
