Sustainability and clean air are some of Omnitrans’ core values, and we are proud to have bolstered our efforts toward this cause by retrofitting 58 buses with near-zero emission engines since the end of last year, bringing our total to 106 coaches with near-zero emission engines. This means that the new engines on these buses extend their life, and significantly eliminate emissions to nearly zero. Omnitrans already operates a fully compressed natural gas (CNG) fleet, which is much cleaner than diesel. All of this contributes to cleaner air for healthier communities in the San Bernardino County area.
Additionally, work is well underway to release our first four zero emission buses into service in the coming weeks! These 100% electric, battery-operated buses are the first of many, as Omnitrans works to transition to a fully zero-emission fleet by the year 2040 along with all other transit agencies in California.
Riding the bus is just one way to go green. Check out Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Help Protect the Earth for more easy ways to make an impact this Earth Day and every other day. Thank you for doing your part to contribute to a brighter environmental future for our local communities and beyond!
