Lebanon Transit opens fueling station for switch to natural gas

Lebanon

Lebanon Transit is hitting the road with new buses that run on compressed natural gas.

The public transportation service joined officials from PennDOT and Trillium CNG on Tuesday for a formal opening of the facility where the buses will be fueled, at 200 Willow Street.

Lebanon Transit will convert eight buses to the cleaner-burning fuel and expects to save about $50,000 annually.

Trillium is the company that builds, operates and maintains the fueling stations.

The new fueling station is part of the state’s P-3 project, which will open 29 stations across Pennsylvania.

The Lebanon station is the 14th to open. Rabbitransit opened its station in York in 2017.

Other stations will be built over the next several years.
