 The Future is Riding on METRO


cng bus In May 2006, METRO introduced 13 new, natural gas 
 buses to their bus fleet.

 The new CNG buses, built by ORION --  with engines
 produced by John Deere, are air conditioned, produce low
 emissions and cut down on noise pollution. The new
 buses also help reduce American dependence on
 imported oil.



Benefits of Natural Gas:

* Clean Burning  --  Low emissions.


* Nearly 87% of natural gas consumed in the U.S. is produced in North America.


* Natural gas engines reduce noise pollution -- they are 10-15 decibels lower than diesel.
