SAN BERNARDINO – The third generation of natural gas is here, and Omnitrans officials say it promises to be more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient than its predecessors while also alleviating concerns about students at a nearby school.

The public transit agency on Tuesday unveiled state-of-the-art compressed natural gas fueling equipment at its West Fifth Street facility, replacing liquefied natural gas equipment installed in 2002.

Omnitrans CEO/General Manager P. Scott Graham called the switch “a significant milestone in continuing to be good neighbors and leaders in clean natural gas.”
