Long Beach Transit Receives Grant to Purchase Clean Air Bus Engines

 

Long Beach Transit (LBT) has received a $600,000 grant from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) of the South Coast Air Quality Management District Near Zero Incentive Program for the purchase of 40 near-zero emission CNG engines. The engines are upgrades to a recent bus procurement as the near-zero engines were not available when the purchase was authorized in 2016.

The buses will be equipped with the Cummins Westport 8.9-liter engine that is certified by the California Air Resources Board and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to meet or exceed optional and more stringent near zero standards.

LBT has a long history of using innovative technologies to promote clean air in its service area that includes 13 cities and 100 square miles. LBT purchased its first CNG buses in 2012.
