Grande West Transportation Group Inc. is now offering clean burning, low-emission Cummins ISB G CNG engines for its 2017 Vicinity bus line.

The ISB G Engine has the lowest North American Emissions standards and is approved from both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Air Resources Board in California. This certification represents major emissions reduction well below current EPA nitrogen oxide emissions standards - providing the cleanest engine in the bus industry. The engine also greatly reduces Particulate Matter, providing major greenhouse gas benefits.

Grande West has worked to engineer its CNG-powered Vicinity using components and systems that are of the highest quality and reliability. The buses will deliver the performance demanded by its customers, as well as offer the best maintenance and serviceability available in the market, according to the company.

“We are seeing a growing demand for natural gas powered buses,” said Jean-Marc Landry, executive VP, sales and marketing. “CNG has helped transit customers meet stringent clean air requirements and is now being requested on many tenders in Canada and the U.S. The CNG option has been a requirement in many of our tenders as transit agencies move towards lower operating costs associated with CNG.”
