Canada’s Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Industry Recognizes Transit Agencies for NGV Leadership

Nov 10, 2019

Calgary, AB  ̶  The Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance (CNGVA) is pleased to award its inaugural NGV Leadership Awards to Calgary Transit, BC Transit and Hamilton Street Railway.

CNGVA’s first NGV Leadership Awards build on the collaborative efforts of industry and government in support of the NGV Deployment Roadmap: Natural Gas Use in the Medium and Heavy-Duty Transportation Sector – updated and recently released in collaboration with Natural Resources Canada. The awards celebrate market leadership in adopting natural gas as a fleet fuel and recognizing its environmental, economic and operational benefits. They recognize an operator’s investment in natural gas buses, training and infrastructure that has improved regional air quality, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and created local green jobs with an abundant, domestic resource. CNGVA applauds these fleet operators for their leadership and commitment to affordable, cleaner, quieter transportation.

“BC Transit and FortisBC have enjoyed a collaborative and constructive relationship over many years, particularly since the adoption of natural gas as a fuel for their CNG fleet starting in Nanaimo. FortisBC looks forward to supporting BC Transit’s continued adoption of cleaner burning transportation fuels over the coming years across their large service territory. FortisBC is proud to nominate BC Transit for this award and to recognize their leadership in sustainable public transportation. Congratulations and well deserved!”
