BC Transit - New buses for Kamloops mean safer, greener public transit

Via BC Transit. 

Plans to upgrade Kamloops Transit’s full fleet of buses to compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vehicles that come with modern features like Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) received the green light from city council yesterday after a successful pilot that showed these buses to perform well in all four seasons while garnering significant savings in operating costs.

Following the construction of a fast-fill fuelling station, 25 CNG buses have been in operation for over a year and another 19 will begin arriving in early 2017 to replace the remaining diesel buses – making Kamloops a fully CNG-enabled transit community.
