Maryland Mass Transit Administration Demonstration of Liquefied Natural Gas Transit Buses
The Maryland Mass Transit Administration conducted an LNG transit bus demonstration in Baltimore, Maryland. A refueling facility was constructed and maintenance facilities were modified to provide support for the demonstration. During the demonstration operational data were collected on the buses and facilities. Problems encountered with the vehicle LNG fuel systems are reviewed and discussed. This paper summarizes the findings and operation of the LNG fleet during the demonstration and projects future LNG vehicle and operational costs.
