Yale University Transitions Fleets to Natural Gas
Yale University recently announced it has deployed four CNG transit buses as the latest move to continue its transition to natural gas. Yale Fleet Management currently operates three MV- 1 Mobility or Special Services vehicles. Yale is able to refuel these shuttles at a public access station located in West Haven. Metro Taxi opened that fueling station last fall using a grant for alternative fuel vehicles from the Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels Project—a public/private partnership. A second fueling station will be opening at the All Waste facility in New Haven, which is closer to downtown and will allow for more efficient fueling. Over the next year, Yale Fleet hopes to purchase thirteen additional CNG-powered vehicles.
