Clean Cities Success Stories: CNG School Buses
Our Success Story takes us to Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Their school district has been a leader in alternative fuels since 1995, as the state’s first school district to start operating compressed natural gas school buses. Today nearly half of their 114 buses run on CNG, making it one of the largest such fleets on the East Coast. Recently named as “one of the top five government green fleets in North America”, plans are to go all-CNG fleet once more fueling stations become available.
GERALD RINEER: There are additional manufacturers coming out with new engines and new equipment so it will be more cost-effective. We’re optimistic; it’s the right thing to help clean up environment.
JOHN DAVIS: Working with the Greater Philadelphia Clean Cities Program, Lower Merion is showing its long standing commitment to sustainable eco-friendly practices in the Delaware Valley.
