March 25, 2021. Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a leading supplier of electric, CNG, gas and clean diesel buses, announced the receipt of a new order for 17 Vicinity™ Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses totaling more than $5 million. These buses are expected to be delivered in Q4 2021.
“As cities across North America transition their public transportation fleets to vehicles fueled by clean energy alternatives like electric and CNG, we expect to see additional strong demand for our CNG Vicinity bus line,” said William Trainer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Grande West. “Government regulations are mandating a reduction in nitrogen oxide and greenhouse gas emissions – a natural tailwind for our CNG product line given compressed natural gas is the cleanest burning transportation fuel on the market today.
“In the coming years, stricter mandates will propel the transition to zero emission electric vehicles, where our Vicinity Lightning EV bus is rapidly gaining attention as the natural progression of a more sustainable public transportation system. We look forward to working closely with customers as we continue to tailor the next-generation of electric vehicles to their exacting needs,” concluded Trainer.
