LA Metro Board approved a 10-year CNG station operation and maintenance contract with Clean Energy for four of LA Metro’s CNG bus fueling stations. With this award, Clean Energy will continue to operate and maintain all of the Agency’s 10 CNG bus fueling stations as well as an 11th station currently under construction by Clean Energy.
Clean Energy anticipates compressing approximately 15 million gallons of natural gas annually for the next 10 years to serve the 4 stations named in this contract. Additionally, Clean Energy expects to continue to compress approximately 21 million gallons of CNG annually for LA Metro’s additional stations.
“Since completing our fleet’s transition to natural gas, LA Metro’s fleet of over 2,000 buses operates more than 80 percent cleaner. Clean Energy has been our trusted partner to accomplish this and lead the nation in clean and reliable transit. We’re happy to continue this relationship as we continue to serve the people of Los Angeles County,” said Arthur T. Leahy, CEO, LA Metro.
“LA Metro has helped the people of Los Angeles breathe—and ride—easier with the largest natural gas fleet in the country. We look forward to continuing to serve the LA Metro and the millions of riders who depend on it,” said Derek Turbide, Clean Energy regional vice president
LA Metro is expected to use approximately 36 million gasoline-gallons-equivalent of CNG per year which reduces greenhouse gases by 75,852 metric tons per year, the equivalent of taking 15,660 cars off the road per year.
