TransLink commits to net
zero emissions by 2050
▶ A Climate Action Strategy was released
by TransLink that maps an aggressive
path to emitting zero greenhouse gas
emissions (GHGs). This strategy provides
new emission reduction targets for all
TransLink operations, fleet and facilities.
It also identifies opportunities to create a
more climate resilient transit system that
better withstands the effects of climate
change on infrastructure, as well as
providing customer safety and comfort
during extreme weather. This strategy
applies to the entire fleet of transit vehicles,
service vehicles, stations, terminals,
transit hubs, park n' rides, transit centers,
maintenance centers and administrative
offices. The Climate Action Strategy sets
new ambitious goals for TransLink and its
operating companies, including achieving
net zero GHGs by 2050, transitioning to
a zero-emission bus fleet by 2040, a 45
percent reduction of GHGs by 2030 (over
2010 levels) and the creation of a more
resilient system that can better withstand
climate impacts that also keeps customers
safe and comfortable in extreme weather.

CUTRIC launches transit studies
comparing natural gas and diesel
▶ The Canadian Urban Transit Research
& Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) has
partnered with Enbridge Gas to launch
three studies comparing buses powered
with renewable natural gas (RNG),
compressed natural gas (CNG) and diesel
fuel. Conducted separately for Calgary
Transit, Orange County Transportation
Authority and TransLink, these four-month
projects analyze factors ranging from fuel
usage and vehicle maintenance to the total
cost of ownership and greenhouse gas
emissions based on differing propulsion
fuels in transit buses. Each project delivers
a comprehensive review of existing CNG
and RNG applications across Canadian
and U.S. transit fleets, and determines
total emissions based on transit fleet data
from selected samples and average values.
With roughly 825 CNG buses on Canadian
roads, and with Canada's operating RNG
production facilities soon to be joined by
more, the technology can help displace
diesel, one of the most carbon-intensive
and costly fuels in the marketplace.
