Ohio School District Debuts New CNG Buses
The Canton City School District in Canton, Ohio, debuted four new CNG buses this weekend at their Summer Programming Fair.
The School District worked with Clean Fuels Ohio to purchase the buses with money received from an Ohio EPA Diesel Emissions Reduction Grant. The buses, manufactured by Myers Equipment Corp., are the first CNG school buses in Northeast Ohio.
Canton City School District will be fueling the CNG buses at the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) public refueling station. The station opened in early 2012 and was partially funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, a grant also secured with the help of Clean Fuels Ohio.
Prior to receiving the buses, the district estimated each CNG bus will travel more than 19,000 miles each year. Canton retired spare buses and plans on deploying the CNG buses to operate on the four highest mileage routes once integrated into the fleet.
