Cherokee Nation Deploys New CNG Buses
On Thursday, the Cherokee Nation replaced several transit buses with four new CNG buses. The Cherokee Nation bought the CNG buses using a $300,000 Federal Transit Administration grant they received last spring. The Cherokee Nation was one of two tribes in Oklahoma to receive the funds. The Cherokee Nation will lease three of the CNG transit buses to Ki Bois Area Transit System and will lease one bus to Pelivan Transit. “Transitioning our bus fleet to CNG means the Cherokee Nation transportation efforts are now more environmentally friendly, more efficient and more cost effective in the long term,” said Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.
