VIA Metropolitan Transit to buy 135 CNG buses over the next year

By on Wed, December 7, 2016

VIA Metropolitan Transit is making good on a promise to switch over its entire bus fleet to compressed natural gas over the next five to six years.

The San Antonio-based public transit agency’s board of the trustees met on Tuesday and approved VIA’s $219.9 million budget for fiscal year 2017. With VIA’s fiscal year starting on Oct. 1, the new budget maintains fares at current levels and reflects a one percent increase in expenses over the previous year.
