San Bernardino Associated Governments Alternative Fuel Truck Project

San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) partnered on this project with the California Energy Commission (CEC) and Ryder Systems, Inc., to deploy 202 state-of-the-art compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) heavy-duty tractor-trailer trucks in leased service. The objectives of the project were to 1) demonstrate the feasibility of using cleaner-burning, lower-carbon content natural gas in commercial trucking operations; 2) provide a low-carbon supply chain transportation solution to Ryder customers seeking to displace petroleum diesel fuel with domestically produced natural gas; and 3) achieve substantial, quantifiable reductions in ozone precursor and greenhouse gas (GHG) air pollutant emissions within the jurisdiction of the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD). In addition to the deployment of the heavy-duty natural gas tractors, the project also constructed two publicly accessible natural gas fueling stations in the cities of Fontana and Orange, California, and a CNG/LNG maintenance facility in Rancho Dominquez, California.
