Metro Debuts New CNG Buses in Washington D.C.
Metro placed in service the first five new 40-foot CNG buses under a large order of nearly 300 buses to replace Metro’s oldest vehicles and improve customer convenience.
The new buses will run on routes that originate out of Metro’s Bladensburg Division, which primarily serves Northeast DC and parts of Prince George’s County, Maryland. The CNG buses being replaced have been in service for 15 years and are at the end of their useful life.
Metro is replacing 295 buses this year: 274 standard buses that are 40 feet in length, plus an additional 21 60-foot articulated buses that began service last month.
