Integrys Energy Group’s Trillium CNG opened another fueling location for compressed natural gas (CNG) at a public transit center in Glenwood Springs, CO. The Roaring Fork Transportation Authority expects about one-third of its public transit buses will be running on CNG by this fall. Trillium builds and operates natural gas fueling stations throughout the nation. Trillium has been building these fueling stations for 20 years and won the contract with Roaring Fork through a competitive bid. The transit authority bills itself as the first rural bus rapid transit system in the nation, drawing recognition from the Obama administration last year. The new system will operate with CNG buses between Glenwood Springs and Aspen.
