PennDOT Seeks Bids for CNG Fueling Station Projects

| November 24, 2014

PennDOT Seeks Bids for CNG Fueling Station ProjectsThe Pennsylvania State’s Public-Private Transportation Partnership Office (PennDOT) is inviting the private sector to submit their qualifications to compete for the opportunity to develop clean-burning compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations at public transit agencies around the state that would also be available for use by the public.

“Natural gas is a valuable resource that provides affordable, cleaner options for vehicles in Pennsylvania,” said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. “This project will ensure we can capitalize on this resource and also benefit the authorities that provide vital transportation services.”

The selected private partner will design, build, finance, operate and maintain CNG filling stations at up to 37 transit facilities. Each fueling site must provide access to CNG for public transit and other CNG vehicles.

In addition, PennDOT will enter into a CNG supply contract with the selected partner as well as purchase agreements with each of the transit agencies. PennDOT would receive a portion of the fuel sales revenue, with the money being returned to transit agencies to assist with future capital projects.
