East Baton Rouge Adds CNG to Fleet, Plans More

22 June 2005

East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, is adding its first five CNG vehicles for its fleet: four Honda Civic GXs and one three-quarter-ton Chevy truck. 

Based on its experience with the new vehicles over the past several weeks, the Department of Public Works is planning to replace all of its sedans with CNG vehicles over the next several years as the cars currently in use wear out.

In addition to the clean air aspect of the vehicles, the city-parish will also save approximately $0.65  per gallon on fuel costs with the current high prices of gasoline. 

The  Clean Cities initiative of the Department of Energy contributed to the purchase.  Baton Rouge is the only city in Louisiana that has been granted the Clean City designation, whose purpose is to reduce petroleum use and provide clean air alternatives.
