York County gets second CNG stationNew West Manchester facility to be used for bus fueling, also open to the public

By ,

A new compressed natural-gas fueling station has opened in West Manchester Township, a step that officials hope will help the environment while saving money for local transit.

Officials from the state Department of Transportation, York-based rabbittransit and other agencies Thursday marked the opening of the new CNG facility at rabbittransit’s headquarters, 415 N. Zarfoss Drive.

It is York County’s second CNG facility, joining one that opened earlier this year at an existing Pacific Pride commercial fuel station in Spring Garden Township.

And it is part of an $84.5 million statewide project in which natural-gas supplier Trillium CNG is designing, building, financing, operating and maintaining CNG fueling stations at 29 public-transit agency sites.

Other stations will be built over the next five years. Trillium is also making CNG-related upgrades to existing transit maintenance facilities, state officials said in announcing the West Manchester Township location.

As part of the project in York, rabbitransit will convert 54 diesel buses and 33 paratransit buses to CNG, adding to the agency’s lone existing CNG bus.

The authority estimates it will save more than $500,000 annually, based on current diesel costs and its diesel and gas usage of roughly 700,000 gallons per year, state officials said.

In addition to being used for transit bus fueling, the York station will be open to the public 24/7, officials added.

When the overall statewide project is completed, the fueling stations will supply gas to more than 1,600 CNG buses at transit agencies across the state.
