This project is aligned with both federal and regional government policies regarding sustainable mobility and energy. As a result, it is quite feasible that this model will be replicated in the transport sector, in order to help achieve the goal agreed by Mexico through the Special Climate Change Program, which seeks to reduce 50% its greenhouse gases emissions by 2050, compared to those registered in 2000.
Besides, Carlos A. Vela Núñez, Sales and Aftermarket Engineering manager at Dina, gave information about the Linner G buses, spoke about their settings and advantages. The vehicles are equipped with Cummins ISL G CNG engine, 6 cylinders, 250 HP and meet EPA 2013 emissions requirements. Each bus has a capacity of 41 high seats and features electronic route sign, surveillance cameras and advanced security systems.
It is noteworthy that these are Dina’s first CNG powered buses operating in Mexico. The total investment including the 50-bus fleet and the natural gas refueling station reached 120 million pesos (about USD 10 million).
