Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) Gets New CNG Contract From TransLink of BC

Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) was awarded a new long term CNG contract by TransLink, the South Coast BC Transportation Authority to expand and maintain their fleet of 60 clean burning CNG buses.  CLNE has been under contract with TransLink for 10 years and this contract enables TransLink to more than double its fleet as Vancouver moves to greatly reduce harmful emissions.  Natural gas produces up to 23% lower greenhouse gas emissions than diesel and is domestically sourced in both the US and Canada.

Alberto Cayuela, TransLink’s Project Manager, said, “Our agency is committed to the reduction of emission impacts from the operation of our transit fleet. To meet this goal, TransLink works to surpass applicable emission regulations and standards in the procurement of new fleet vehicles, and seeks continuous improvement in emissions from the existing fleet by retrofitting or replacing existing equipment and using cleaner fuels. Our program ranges from an ongoing commitment to zero-emission electric trolleys and an investment in clean diesel/electric hybrids to our new fleet of CNG-powered coaches.”
