SunLine Transit Agency

SunLine Transit Agency of Thousand Palms, California. An internationally respected leader and advocate of clean fuels and clean energy, in 1994, SunLine became the first public transit agency in the country to park all its diesel buses and switch overnight to a fleet powered 100% by compressed natural gas. In April 2000, SunLine opened the world's first hydrogen generation, storage and dispensing facility built by a transit agency where hydrogen is generated from renewable solar power and reformed from natural gas. SunLine has many years of experience operating hydrogen infrastructure, fuel cell and blended fuel vehicles (hydrogen and natural gas), and as an Associate Member of the California Fuel Cell Partnership, looks toward a gradual replacement of its fleet with fuel cell buses.
