Trillium CNG to Build Station for San Antonio Transit Authority
Trillium CNG, a part of the Love’s Family of Companies, has been selected by VIA Metropolitan, the transit authority servicing San Antonio, to design and build a new CNG fueling facility. The facility will feature ten CNG pumps that will be added to VIA’s current private fueling facility on North Flores Street.
VIA provides public transportation services to 13 cities in the Greater San Antonio Region and the unincorporated areas of Bexar County. VIA operates seven days a week on 90 routes and provided 41 million rides across the region in 2015. The VIA Board of Trustees recently voted to replace the agency’s fleet with CNG-fueled vehicles.
Construction on the new station is scheduled to begin this fall and open by late spring 2017. The facility will include seven 700-horsepower compressors, with a total flow rate of more than 85 GGEs per minute.
Love’s Travel Stops operates more than 50 travel stops in the state of Texas, eight of which offer Love’s Fast-Fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks and a CNG fueling option for motorists. Trillium operates an additional 13 public CNG fueling stations in the state.
