The City of Kansas City, Mo., opened its fifth fast-fill CNG fueling station, but it is the first open to the public. The $2.1 million station will have two dispensers, one dedicated to city fleet vehicles and the other for public use.

The new station is expected to reduce the city’s fuel costs by an approximately $250,000, according to a press release from the city.

These CNG vehicles reduce air pollution and save millions of gallons of fuel annually. The city uses approximately 620,000 gallons of CNG annually which is 26% of the total fuel used,” said Sam Swearngin, fleet manager for Kansas City. 

Kansas City's government has 271 CNG vehicles, 46 all-electric vehicles, 12 hybrids and several other alternative-fuel vehicles. 

Clean Energy Fuels and the city worked together to build the station, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
