PennDOT, Lebanon Transit Open CNG Transit Fueling Station

On January 22, the Department of Transportation, Lebanon Transit and Trillium CNG mark the opening of a Compressed Natural Gas transit fueling station at 200 Willow Street in Lebanon.
Under the program, Lebanon Transit will convert eight buses to CNG. The authority estimates saving roughly $50,000 annually based on current diesel costs and their diesel usage of roughly 35,000 gallons per year.
Through the $84.5 million statewide P3 project, Trillium is designing, building, financing, and will operate and maintain CNG fueling stations at 29 public transit agency sites through a 20-year P3 agreement.  Thirteen fueling stations are now open.
“This innovative program is helping transit agencies save on fuel costs while allowing them to move to a cleaner burning fuel,” Governor Wolf said. “These are important steps to helping us improve the quality of life across Pennsylvania.”
Other stations will be constructed over the next several years, and Trillium is also making CNG-related upgrades to existing transit maintenance facilities.
“Pennsylvania is now a leading producer of natural gas, and this initiative aims to take advantage of that new, cleaner burning fuel source,” said PennDOT Deputy Secretary for Multimodal Jennie Granger. “PennDOT is excited to partner on this program that will bring benefits for the state, transit agencies, and the public for years to come.”
