Trillium Opens Its Fourth Public CNG Location for Pennsylvania Department of Transportation in Indiana County
New Alternative Fueling Station Now Open in Indiana, Pennsylvania
HOUSTON, October 30, 2018 - Trillium, one of the nation's leading providers of alternative fuel systems and renewable fuels, along with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today celebrated the opening of the commonwealth's newest compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Indiana County Commissioners Michael Baker and Rodney Ruddock attended the station's ribbon cutting alongside members of IndiGO's Board of Directors.
The facility is the fourth of six new public CNG fueling stations Trillium is designing, building and maintaining for numerous transit authorities in Pennsylvania as part of a public-private partnership (P-3) contract PennDOT awarded to the company in 2016. The P-3 project will provide CNG to more than 1,600 buses at transit agencies across Pennsylvania, including 11 at the Indiana location. The agreement also brings 23 additional private CNG facilities to the commonwealth.
"The Indiana County Transit Authority is thrilled to be part of the P-3 program that will provide our authority and the public with access to a more cost-effective and cleaner burning fuel," said John Kanyan, executive director.
The station, located at 1640 Saltsburg Avenue in Indiana, is open 24/7 and features one public CNG dispenser and one private CNG dispenser. It will primarily serve IndiGO's fleet of CNG buses, but it's also open to the public, including light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
"Since entering the agreement with PennDOT, it's incredible to see how much we've accomplished in bringing more CNG stations to transit authorities and drivers in Pennsylvania, and it's great to see the hard work paying off," said Bill Cashmareck, director of Trillium. "Together, we're offering a clean fuel derived from an abundant local resource, and we're giving consumers another option they didn't have before. It's a big win for Pennsylvania."
Larson Design Group of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, is assisting with the construction of the locations. Additional public facilities are scheduled to open at transit authorities across Pennsylvania in Lackawanna and Erie Counties in later phases of the project.
