C-TRAN Shifts Bus Fleet to B20

C-TRAN, the rapid transit agency serving Clark County, Washington (which includes Vancouver), is shifting its bus fleet to B20 biodiesel from B5.

In February, C-TRAN introduced  a B100 “Breathe Easy...” bus as part of a pilot project. C-TRAN believes it is the only transit agency on the West coast that currently has a revenue fleet vehicle running on B100.

In November 2006, C-TRAN announced the award of more than $605,000 in grants from the Washington State Department of Ecology to retrofit its entire bus fleet to accommodate the use of new ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD). C-TRAN has also secured grant funds to upgrade currently funded diesel bus replacements to hybrid technology. Twelve new diesel-electric hybrids are scheduled to arrive in 2008.
