Natural gas for transportation

The right fuel for your fleet

More and more fleet owners and operators across North America are switching to natural gas so they can save on fuel costs and shrink their environmental footprint.
With more than 16.7 million natural gas vehicles in use worldwide, it’s already a conventional fuel choice.

 Why make the shift to natural gas?


BC’s transportation industry is responsible for the largest share of provincial greenhouse gas emissions.1 By converting fleets and vehicles to natural gas we’ll be helping the province meet its future goals of reducing carbon emissions. Other benefits include:

Fuel cost savings

Natural gas vehicles can save 25 to 50 per cent in fuel costs compared to diesel.2

Compare your estimated diesel cost with compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) with our fuel savings calculator.

Fewer greenhouse gas emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced on a lifecycle basis by 15 to 25 per cent with natural gas compared to gasoline or diesel.3

Proven, market-ready technology

Mature technology and an abundance of natural gas vehicle manufacturers mean the time is right to make the shift.

Quieter operation

Natural gas vehicles are quieter than comparable diesel trucks,4 benefiting drivers and the communities they operate in.
