Compressed Natual Gas (CNG) Fueling Facility
CNG is a fuel that burns cleaner and is less expensive than either gasoline or diesel fuel. The City of Ontario operates a fleet of vehicles that run on CNG fuel.
The CNG station is also open for use by the public, seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. The station is located at 1440 South Cucamonga Avenue.
The system is activated with a Visa or MasterCard.
The office hours are Monday through Thursday 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or Friday 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For additional information, please call (909) 395-2649.
City of Ontario Expands CNG Fleet and Upgrades CNG Fueling Facility
Within the last two months, the City of Ontario has taken possession of six new CNG powered refuse trucks. The purchase of six automated trucks brings the City’s fleet of CNG refuse powered vehicles to sixty-nine. In addition to CNG powered refuse trucks, the City has four CNG powered Ford F-150’s, six CNG powered Honda Civics and three CNG powered sewer vactors.
The City of Ontario is also in the process of upgrading its CNG fueling facility. The project includes the installation of new and replacement fuel dispensers and provision of additional CNG fuel storage capacity.
The City has been awarded grant funds from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) Local Government Match Program in the amounts of $180,000 for the incremental cost increase of outfitting new refuse trucks with CNG fuel systems and up to $400,000 for planned expansion and improvements to the City’s CNG fueling facility.
