Trillium now operates the nation’s soon-to-be largest single CNG station. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) in Las Vegas, Nevada, selected Trillium, a Love’s Company, to be its new operations and maintenance provider to its two CNG stations. The stations currently provide fuel to more than 330 paratransit buses and more than 230 fixed-route buses powered by CNG. These numbers are expected to increase over the next five years as the RTC converts its fleet to nearly 100% CNG vehicles.
Love’s alternative fuel branch will implement a comprehensive CNG maintenance plan for RTC including proactive, scheduled and emergency maintenance. The four-year contract began July 2018 and contains two optional one-year extensions.
“Safety and preventative maintenance are paramount in operations of this magnitude,” said Bill Cashmareck, managing director of Trillium. “Keeping RTC rolling in the best possible shape is of the utmost importance, not only to the city’s millions of visitors, but also to residents who rely on paratransit and route services to commute to work and beyond.”
Trillium will provide CNG maintenance services at RTC’s Integrated Bus Maintenance Facility (IBMF) located at 2751 Simmons, North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030; and Sunset Maintenance Facility (SMF) located at 5165 West Sunset Road, Las Vegas, Nevada 89118.
