A new public-private partnership will add 29 compressed natural gas fueling stations across Pennsylvania over the next several years, including one in Bradford, and the first one opened today.
The first fueling station under the $84.5 million project opened today in Johnstown with the Cambria County Transportation Authority. Trillium CNG is the company that is building the sites, which will be mainly for transit agencies but some — including the one in Johnstown— will also be open to the public, according to a news release from Governor Tom Wolf.
The five-year plan also includes CNG fueling stations set to open in 2019 at the proposed ATA transit center in Bradford and the one in Johnsonburg; in 202 in DuBois and 2021 at the Transit Authority of Warren County.
In December, the state awarded grant money to the ATA as part of a plan to build a regional transfer center in downtown Bradford similar to the center in St. Marys.
