The presentation will focus on the results of an analysis of options for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to convert its fleet to “Zero Emission” or “Near-Zero Emission” buses. The analysis compared the costs and emission benefits of converting the entire 2,194 bus Metro transit fleet from conventional CNG buses to electric buses, fuel cell buses, or Low-NOx CNG buses operated on renewable natural gas.
