Calgary breaks ground on CNG bus facility

The City of Calgary today celebrated a groundbreaking event for the Stoney Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Bus Storage and Transit Facility.

The new 44,300 square metre facility will provide storage and maintenance space for Calgary Transit’s new fleet of CNG buses, as well as diesel buses that are currently stored outside the City’s other bus garages. The complex will be capable of housing a minimum of 424 buses, 36 maintenance bays, two steam cleaning bays, on-site compressed natural gas fuelling infrastructure, and associated staff facilities.

“This is a great day for Calgarians as construction begins on this important transit facility,” said mayor Naheed Nenshi. “I’m excited about the economic impact the construction of this facility will bring to the city, and the permanent jobs created with the operation and maintenance of this bus storage and transit facility.”
