NFTA’s Military Road Station Is to Have a Two-Compressor ANGI Package

Trillium CNG has signed a letter of agreement to design, build, operate and maintain a compressed natural gas fueling station for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority in Buffalo, N.Y. NFTA provides public transit service in Erie and Niagara counties.


The new CNG station will be located at the NFTA Frontier Bus Garage on Military Road in Buffalo. The agreement letter also calls for Trillium CNG to provide station maintenance for ten years. Trillium CNG and NFTA expect to break ground in August with the station fully operational by the end of 2015.

It’s to have two 250-horsepower, ANGI-packaged compressors, expandable to five, feeding four fast-fill transit dispensers and four light-fury satellite dispensers. There will be six storage tubes.

NFTA operates a fleet of about 332 transit buses and 65 bus routes with over 4,400 bus stops serviced; along with a 6.2 mile light rail system servicing 14 stations, Trillium says.

44 Nova Bus NGVs for NFTA, with Options for More

Volvo’s Nova Bus announced an $11 million order for 20 of its low-floor LFS model CNG buses from NFTA last year, noting options for as many as 166 buses. They are to be assembled in New York State for delivery this year. They will be the first CNG vehicles from Nova Bus for the U.S.

The NFTA board has since approved the purchase of 24 more Nova Bus vehicles for delivery in 2016. The buses have 8.9-liter ISL G engines from Cummins Westport and CNG cylinder assemblies by Agility Fuel Systems, each with nine Type III carbon fiber-on-aluminum tanks from Worthington.

CNG Paratransit Vehicles Too

In addition to the Nova Bus vehicles, NFTA is buying ten CNG-fueled paratransit vehicles through Canandaigua, N.Y.-based Shepard Brothers. It’s the third order of ten from Shepherd, and the first for CNG. The Ford E-450 chassis vehicles have bodies by Coach & Equipment Manufacturing of Penn Yan, N.Y. The new buses will have CNG fuel system by Green Alternative Systems.

Trillium CNG is a unit of WEC Energy.

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority operates hybrid electic buses and by year-end will have CNG vehicles too.

Second Fueling Station to Be Built for Agency in Downtown L.A.

Trillium CNG says it’s been picked to design, build, operate and maintain a second compressed natural gas fueling station “for the largest operator of CNG-fueled school buses in the country, the Los Angeles Unified School District.” updated June 17

Trillium CNG owns and operates a CNG station in Gardena, Calif. that it designed and built for the exclusive use of the Los Angeles Unified School District in January, 2000.

Trillium CNG owns and operates a CNG station in Gardena, Calif. that it designed and built for the exclusive use of the Los Angeles Unified School District in January, 2000.

The new private station at LAUSD’s San Julian Garage near downtown Los Angeles will be the second and operated by Trillium CNG for the agency, supplementing a facility in Gardena, to the south, that dates from January 2000.

The San Julian site will feature 102 time-fill posts and a single fast-fill dispenser, Trillium says, with fuel dispensed overnight using two 150 horsepower compressors. The new station is expected to deliver 500,000 gasoline gallons equivalent per year.

529 Type D School Buses on CNG

LAUSD operates 529 CNG-fueled Type D school buses, says transportation director Donald Wilkes. “Fuel cost savings range from $1.50 to $2.50” per gallon equivalent,” he says, depending on vehicle type.

LAUSD also operates 141 propane autogas-fueled Type C school buses, Wilkes told F&F, as well as white fleet vehicles powered by propane, CNG and liquefied natural gas, and hybrid electrics. “Additionally, all remaining diesel engine school buses in the fleet operate on biodiesel fuel,” he adds.

“Operation of alternative fuel vehicles has contributed towards LAUSD’s reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2,600 metric tons,” Wilkes says.


Early Adopter

“The Los Angeles Unified School District was an early adopter of CNG for school buses and has realized for over a decade the economic and environmental benefits of using an American transportation fuel,” Trillium CNG president Mary Boettcher said in the new station announcement.

Trillium+LAUSD

Longtime clean air collaborators

“We value our 15-year working relationship,” she said.

The San Julian groundbreaking is slated for late next month. Trillium says it expects the new facility to be built and operating by October.

Trillium CNG is to maintain the station for 15 years.
