Trillium to Build CNG Station for California Transit District
August 10, 2017
Love’s Trillium CNG was recently selected by Oxnard-based Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) in Southern California to design and build a CNG fueling station for its fleet of CNG buses. GCTD, which provides nearly 4 million passenger trips annually, is building a new maintenance and operations facility that includes a new administration and operations building, fleet maintenance and repair building, and a CNG fueling station. GCTD contracted with Icon West and Trillium to design and build the CNG portion of the project.
“This new fueling station will serve our needs as we expand our fleet and provide more service to the residents of our district,” said Steven Brown, general manager for GCTD. “With the capability to house 125 buses and more than 400 employees at the new facility, we will continue providing service with clean CNG fueled buses that help improve the quality of life in Western Ventura County.”
The private CNG station will fuel 56 buses that will operate in Ojai, Oxnard, Port Hueneme, Ventura and the unincorporated areas of Ventura County. The CNG portion of the new station includes three compressors, storage, a dual-tower, automatic regeneration dryer, three single-hose transit dispensers, and a dual-hose light duty dispenser. The new station is scheduled to open in fall 2018.
