Part of an ARRA Project: Purchase of Six Alternative Fuel Transit Buses Project overview: The purpose of this project is to replace aging and obsolete buses in the Grand Canyon Visitor Transportation System. The Grand Canyon Visitor Transportation System, which provides approximately five million boarding annually, reduces private vehicle traffic on the South Rim and in the Grand Canyon Village. Through this project, the park will be purchasing six low floor accessible compressed natural gas (CNG) fueled transit buses. This purchase will keep our alternatively fueled and accessible fleet up to date. The buses will also have some new features that will benefit visitors including air conditioning, improved emissions, improved public address systems, and intelligent messaging and talking bus capabilities.
