Freedom CNG Celebrates Earth Day On Saturday April 22nd, 2017

HOUSTON, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The results are in for Houston METRO’s greener CNG Fleet. METRO rolled out 50 new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses in January 2016 in partnership with Freedom CNG, a Houston-based CNG fuel provider and the Houston-Galveston Area Council in a collective effort to promote clean air initiatives in the city.

Since inception, METRO CNG buses have logged in the aggregate over 4.5 million miles on the streets of Houston, displacing over 1 million gallons of diesel fuel!

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, CNG fueled buses reduce local carbon dioxide emissionsCarbon dioxide (CO2) is emitted in several ways. Naturally through the carbon cycle and through human activities like the burning of fossil fuels. These human activities have increased CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial revolution and these high ... by 20%, carbon monoxide emissionsEmissions of greenhouse gases, greenhouse gas precursors, and aerosols associated with human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, land-use changes, livestock, fertilisation, etc. (IPCC) by 70% and nitrogen oxide emissions by 75% – 95%. These emissionEmissions of greenhouse gases, greenhouse gas precursors, and aerosols associated with human activities, including the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, land-use changes, livestock, fertilisation, etc. (IPCC) reductions, generated by the replacement of old diesel buses with 50 new CNG buses, have improved air quality in Houston.

METRO uses locally produced CNG for a portion of its transit fleet, and if Texas were a country, according to the Energy Information Administration, it would be the third largest natural gas producing country in the world! This means local fuel, local jobs and local air quality improvement!

Please show your support for Houston’s environment – Ride METRO on Earth Day!
