COTA Joins City of Columbus in Opening CNG Station

The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) recently partnered with the city of Columbus to open a new CNG fueling station, which will be used for fueling city vehicles as well as the public and companies with CNG fleets.

COTA Interim President/Chief Executive Officer Emille Williams said the partnership allowed the agency and the city “to maximize public resources by sharing the infrastructure needed to build and operate the fueling station. This project represents our shared commitment to the operation of green fleets, and to new and emerging technologies.”

The fast-fill station, open 24 hours a day, features four fueling lanes, of which two are available to the public.
