Transpo Lives Earth Day Every Day
Transpo demonstrates the environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient nature of the public transportation industry on Earth Day and Every Day! As a result, Transpo has received national coverage highlighting the organization's sustainability initiatives.

Transpo recently announced it will begin converting fixed route vehicles to compressed natural gas (CNG) later this year with the arrival of 16 new buses to replace aging vehicles. The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) announced yesterday, on Earth Day, that "40.4 percent of U.S. public transportation buses are using alternative fuels or hybrid technology as of January 1, 2013".

In partnership with the City of South Bend, Transpo will construct a CNG fueling center that will be open to the public, support economic development in the area and provide the necessary resources for other regional fleets to pursue CNG as an alternate fuel.
