Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano cut the ribbon on a new fueling station for Montebello's growing fleet of Compresses Natural Gas (CNG) buses.
"These new, clean-burning natural gas buses will allow people to commute in comfort and improve our air quality," Napolitano said. "This fueling station will help support Montebello's growing fleet of natural gas buses."
Napolitano supported the city's efforts to secure $2.1 million in federal funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to help pay for the new bus line.
Montebello currently has 7 clean-burning CNG buses and expects to acquire another 14 over the next two years. The new buses lower Montebello's carbon footprint and contribute to cleaner air quality.
