CATA Announces CNG Station Groundbreaking

Feb. 11, 2015

On Feb. 12 the Central Arkansas Transit Authority (CATA) will host a groundbreaking ceremony for its Natural Gas Fueling Station at the CATA administrative office located at 901 Maple Street in North Little Rock.

The event will kick-off the $2.3 million project that will significantly reduce fuel costs. CATA contracted with Trillium CNG to design, build, operate, and maintain the fueling station. The station will be complete this summer and will fuel 15 natural gas buses scheduled to arrive in July. This fueling station will have the ability to fuel up to 55 natural gas buses in an eight-hour period. Over the next few years, CATA will transition the entire bus inventory to modern, natural gas buses.

“This groundbreaking event is a reflection of a unified effort to strengthen Central Arkansas Transit Authority as a more sustainable transportation alternative that is an asset to the central Arkansas community and driver of the economy,” stated Jarod Varner, CATA executive director. “With the support of the Cities of Little Rock, North Little Rock and Maumelle, Pulaski County, Southwestern Energy and the Arkansas Energy Office, we are able to provide central Arkansas with a more cost effective and environmentally-friendly transit system that meets the needs of passengers today and tomorrow.”
