Nevada Transportation Agency Moving to Natural Gas Paratransits

RO Bus Sales recently announced that it has delivered the last in the first round of 80 new CNG paratransit buses to the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). The paratransit vehicles have been upfitted to meet RTC and federal safety standards under a $7.67 million contract the RTC awarded last October — with four options for an additional 320 units through 2017. To meet RTC standards for fuel capacity equivalent to its 55-gallon gasoline tanks, RO worked with the bus manufacturer and CNG up-fitter to configure two tanks vertically in rear compartments of the unit (a third tank is under the bus) to provide the required rear passenger exit.
