Pennsylvania's Public-Private Transportation Partnership Office is inviting the private sector to submit their qualifications to compete for the opportunity to develop compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations at public transit agencies around the state that would also be available for public use.
The selected private partner will design, build, finance, operate and maintain CNG filling stations at up to 37 transit facilities. Each fueling site must provide access to CNG for public transit and other CNG vehicles.
In addition, PennDOT will enter into a CNG supply contract with the selected partner as well as purchase agreements with each of the transit agencies. PennDOT would receive a portion of the fuel sales revenue, with the money being returned to transit agencies to assist with future capital projects.
The project was approved by the state’s P3 Board on September 29.
Interested bidders must submit hard copy qualification statements to design, build, finance, operate and maintain CNG filling stations to the PennDOT Public-Private Transportation Partnership Office, P.O. Box 3545, Harrisburg, PA 17105, by 11 a.m. on December 23.
