Natural Gas Vehicles & Fueling Stations


Where can I find a CNG fueling station?
Natural gas vehicles (NGVs) are on the move in the Northeast. Fueling with natural gas provides an important alternate fuel source for transportation, and helps reduce air pollution emissions from cars, trucks and buses. It employs a fuel that is domestically-produced and economically competitive. Compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) vehicles represent options for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles in particular.

CNG provides a large majority of the alternate fuel transit bus fleet in the U.S. U.S. EIA in spring 2017 noted that "Transit agencies primarily have heavy-duty buses for mass transit in metropolitan areas. Of all alternative-fuel buses in use, natural gas is by far the most prevalent in fleets. In 2015, transit agencies reported an inventory of slightly more than 14,000 AFVs, and about 10,000 of those AFVs were heavy-duty buses that consumed 132 million gasoline equivalent gallons of natural gas. Natural gas-powered vehicles require less maintenance than standard-fuel vehicles because of cleaner burning engines, which allows for lower emissions and cleaner environments."

The Northeast U.S. is actively promoting alternatively-fueled vehicles to help address the region's air pollution challenges as well as providing an alternative to gasoline-fueled vehicles.
