GILLIG delivers 35 CNG buses to ABQ, 18 more later this year; replacing diesel-hybrids

GILLIG delivered the first 35 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses to Albuquerque’s ABQ RIDE, with an additional 18 scheduled for mid-2024. This inaugural purchase marks a major transition for the agency as they replace old diesel-hybrid buses with new, eco-friendly, and cost-effective GILLIG buses.

These buses are designed to provide ultra-low-emission and ultra-high-performance transit solutions with the lowest total cost of ownership. The vehicles are built on GILLIG’s signature Low-Floor platform, known for its rugged reliability and easy maintenance.

The GILLIG CNG achieved the highest reliability scores and the best CNG fuel economy in Federal Altoona testing.

The environmental benefits of transitioning from older vehicles to these new CNG buses include an estimated reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 356.53 tons and NOx emissions by 3014.55 pounds per bus over its lifespan—the equivalent of planting over 52,000 trees.
