The City of Hobart, in partnership with the South Shore Clean Cities/Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission Green Fleet Program, installed new facilities to safely service its fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, which are fueled on-site at the city's 12-pump CNG fueling station. The CNG fueling station was constructed with the help of CMAQ dollars. Having both the fueling station and garage as part of the city's public works facility reduces downtime from traveling outside of the city to fuel and the CNG vehicles can now be serviced in-house. City officials chose CNG after receiving recommendations for adopting the alternative fuel as part of an audit conducted through the Green Fleet Program. Hobart officials chose CNG because of its cost effectiveness and emissions savings when compared to diesel. City officials plan to purchase additional CNG vehicles.
