Mexico: more than 50% of Querétaro urban transit system runs on CNG
The Querétaro Transport Institute reported that six out of ten buses of Móvil Qrobús, the company responsible for the operation of the integrated public transport system in the metropolitan area of Querétaro, run on natural gas, allowing to improve air quality and reduce environmental pollution in the region.
“At Qrobús we integrate this technology into urban transport, through mobility solutions, which have a direct correlation with air quality. This is a substantial factor in the quality of life of the inhabitants,” said Carlos Toulet, Manager of Communication and Customer Service at Móvil Qrobús.
Qrobús has renewed 50% of its vehicle fleet in the last three years and has chosen to be responsible with the environment. The company reaffirms its commitment to follow the path of sustainable mobility, acting in co-responsibility for the health of society and continually exposing the benefits in reducing carbon emissions from the operation.
According to figures from the National Commission for the Efficient Use of Energy, the use of natural gas helps reduce up to 90% of NOx emissions, 65% of CO and 30% of CO2, compared to gasoline or diesel. In addition, noise pollution is cut in half by having a quieter operation.
