Fleet of Natural-Gas-Powered Buses Hit the Road at UCLA

January 09, 1998

UCLA inaugurated 11 natural gas buses Thursday to replace the school's aging fleet of diesel vehicles.

The new buses, which cost $240,000 each to build and seat 33 passengers, will be used for a shuttle service and special events.

In 1997, campus buses carried 1.3 million passengers. The natural-gas-powered fleet is expected to lower operating and maintenance costs.

"Not only are these buses environmentally friendly, they will provide UCLA students, employees and visitors with state-of-the-art, comfortable transportation to get around campus for many years to come," said Sherry Lewis, UCLA fleet and transit services general manager.
