GILLIG delivered the first 35 compressed natural gas (CNG) buses to Albuquerque’s ABQ RIDE, with an additional 18 scheduled for mid-2024.

The inaugural purchase marks a major transition for the agency as they replace old diesel-hybrid buses with new, eco-friendly, and cost-effective GILLIG buses.

ABQ RIDE’s New Buses

ABQ RIDE’s recent acquisition of GILLIG CNG buses is a game-changing development for the agency and the greater Albuquerque community. The buses are designed to provide ultra-low-emission and ultra-high-performance transit solutions with the lowest total cost of ownership.

The environmental benefits of transitioning from older vehicles to these new CNG buses are remarkable, with an estimated reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 356.53 tons and NOx emissions by 3014.55 pounds per bus over its lifespan, the equivalent of planting over 52,000 trees.

With the acquisition of these buses, ABQ RIDE is taking a bold step forward in reducing its environmental footprint while providing safe, dependable, and cost-effective transit solutions to the community.
