Spain: Murcia transport operator bets on natural gas mobility

Transportes de Murcia has introduced a new natural gas vehicle to its fleet, fulfilling the forecasts of the

bid the transport operator presented to contest of the management contract. The new bus is a CNG

powered Mercedes Urban Spica, and now are already twenty five buses that use this fuel, 16 of this type

and 8 MAN City Versus.

Roque Ortiz, Councilor for Development, highlighted the progress the City to meet “our commitment to a

sustainable, efficient and cleaner mobility” and stressed that they are meeting the commitments of the

management contract of service in terms of the permanent renewal of the fleet.

The new natural gas Mercedes Spica Urban –with a Euro 6 engine with bodywork by Car Bus Net- is

equipped with air suspension on the rear axle to facilitate access for the disabled through the rear double

doors with quick opening, offering comfortable and wide access that facilitates access to all users.

Thanks to CNG, this bus will reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide by 90%, particulates by 99% and carbon

monoxide by 25%. Moreover, fuel does not generate ashes or solid waste, exhaust gas is almost odorless

and emission levels of noise are very low. transport-operator- expands-natural- gas-bus- fleet/
