Why give CNG the green light?

Leaf icon

90% fewer tailpipe emissions*

Because CNG has a lower carbon content than petroleum-based products such as diesel, it burns cleaner, helping you reduce GHG emissions. Recently introduced natural gas engines are more reliable and efficient with "near-zero" certification.

Reduce fuel costs up to 40%

Compared to diesel, CNG has a more stable, predictable fuel price, which means more consistent, long-term operating costs for your municipality and easier budgeting.

Improve fleet performance

CNG buses offer the power, acceleration and cruising speed you'd expect from diesel, and with a much longer range than electric buses, they're clearly superior when it comes to routes of all sizes.

Real talk:

Why it pays to switch fleets to CNG

Hamilton Street Railway, City of Hamilton

After realizing the cost of diesel was on the rise, the City of Hamilton expanded its fleet with 137 new CNG buses and received funding for a new CNG station.

Now the highest capacity station in Ontario.

Fills buses faster than diesel pumps.

Fleets are noticeably quieter.

Transition buses, trucks and more—then go 100% carbon neutral

Our municipal transit program can help you transition buses, snow removers, solid waste trucks and more to CNG to reduce fuel costs.

To get you to zero carbon, we can also help you turn organic waste from landfills and wastewater plants into renewable natural gas (RNG)—reducing your emissions by 100 percent. RNG can take the form of CNG fuel or be used to heat homes and businesses.
