New York City Expanding CNG Bus Fleet, Testing Electrics

By Mike Osenga12 January 2018

New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) has ordered 110 new compressed natural gas (CNG) buses to operate across the Bronx and Brooklyn between now and the first quarter of 2019.

MTA is also taking a look at all-electric buses.  New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has announced a three-year pilot program for 10 all-electric buses with the goal of reducing emissions and modernizing the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s (MTA) bus fleet.

Using lessons learned from the initial phase of the pilot, the MTA intends to order an additional 60 all-electric buses. Timing of the larger order will be dictated by the buses’ performance during the initial phase of the pilot.
