With no funding, Utah clean-air panel dies as smog lives on
Pollution » Utah Legislature created but didn’t secure funding for alternative-energy board.

< Previous Page

UTA General Manager Michael Allegra told an agency committee this week that it plans to buy only natural gas buses for the next several years to replace older diesel ones, not only to make its fleet cleaner but to ensure that it is not dependent on diesel, which sees great swings in price.

UTA also plans to build this year its own natural-gas fueling station in downtown Salt Lake City, with a new garage to maintain its growing natural-gas fleet.
