Clean Cities: Little Rock, Arkansas
Our success story this week takes us to Little Rock, Arkansas, where city buses run on CNG.
Rock Region metro rolled out their first CNG bus less than a year ago, but already plan to expand.
Out of their 58 buses, 15 currently use clean CNG, and they’re moving forward with a time table to replace the rest of the fleet.
An order has already been placed for 7 new CNG buses to be delivered in 2017.
JAROD VARNER: “As we transition the full fleet of buses, we’ll end up saving over a million dollars a year in fuel alone.”
JOHN DAVIS: Rock Region metro worked with local municipalities and other partners on this project, including Arkansas clean cities, southwestern energy, and the federal transit administration. Making this a team effort for a cleaner future for “the natural state”.
