CNG Buses on the Road in Kamloops

Kamloops, B.C. – The Kamloops Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fuelled transit fleet is taking to the streets of Kamloops! As the buses have now cleared inspections and the CNG fueling station is complete, residents of Kamloops can expect to see the full fleet of buses out servicing the city.

The 25 CNG buses are significantly quieter and have simplified emissions systems. The cleaner burning fuel supports Kamloops green initiatives and Sustainable Kamloops Plan. CNG is also a lower-priced fuel in comparison to diesel, which helps keep transit affordable in Kamloops. Kamloops is the second BC Transit community to have adopted CNG technology.
