p3s3img1South Bend, Ind.-based Transpo has received the first several of 16 compressed natural gas-fueled, 35-foot Xcelsior buses by New Flyer (Booth 4037).

“We’re the first transit agency in the State of Indiana to take delivery of CNG-powered transit coaches,” general manager and CEO David Cangany told Fleets & Fuels.

Transpo has commenced training and other preparations as the CNG vehicles will enter service late this year or early next.

The agency is going out to bid for a public access CNG fueling facility in partnership with the City of South Bend, Cangany says.

Transpo’s new CNG vehicles have 8.9-liter, spark-ignition, dedicated-natural gas ISL G engines by Cummins Westport. They have Type IV all-composite carbon fiber CNG fuel cylinders by Hexagon Lincoln (Booth 3655).

New Flyer is at Booth 4037. Cummins is at Booth 4547.
