The Victoria Regional Transit System has dropped its average fleet age from 12.5 years to 9.8 with the official addition of 60 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles.
Promising a quieter, greener transit experience, BC Transit has activated 25 new medium-duty CNG buses, which join the 35 heavy-duty CNG vehicles that replaced aging buses in February.
Ten of the buses replaced in the latest upgrade were aging Dennis Darts that had been in service in Victoria for more than 18 years and had logged roughly 14.4 million cumulative kilometres.
FortisBC supplies natural gas, while the CNG fueling station at the Langford operations and maintenance facility is maintained by Clean Energy.
