Oxnard, Calif.-based Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) recently selected Trillium CNG, part of the Love’s Family of Companies, to design and build a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station for its fleet of CNG buses.

GCTD provides nearly four million passenger trips annually, making it the largest public transit provider in Ventura County. The district is building a new maintenance and operations facility, which includes a new administration and operations building, fleet maintenance and repair building, and a CNG fueling station.

“This new fueling station will serve our needs as we expand our fleet and provide more service to the residents of our district,” Steven Brown, GM for GCTD, said. “With the capability to house 125 buses and more than 400 employees at the new facility, we will continue providing service with clean CNG-fueled buses that help improve the quality of life in Western Ventura County. This is important to helping us fulfill the mission and vision of our agency.”

The private CNG station will fuel 56 buses that will operate in Ojai, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Ventura, and the unincorporated areas of Ventura County. The CNG portion of the new station includes three compressors; robust storage; a dual-tower, automatic regeneration dryer; three single-hose transit dispensers; and a dual-hose light-duty dispenser.

“Continued adoption of CNG is crucial in areas across the country, especially in states like California that are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium CNG, said. “Gold Coast was looking for a station that would last so they could provide environmentally responsible transportation, and we’re pleased to serve them.”

The new station is scheduled to open in fall 2018.
