How is the gas price drop affecting public transit agencies like DART? DART’s President and Executive Director Gary Thomas shares his thoughts in an op-ed posted to The Hill.

He writes:

This price volatility is one of the reasons I feel strongly that having robust energy policies are important.

It’s just one of the considerations that led the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to advance our migration of its 500 buses operating from diesel to natural gas. We’ve have liquefied natural gas buses in our fleet since the late 1990’s. We began our big push to natural gas – compressed natural gas (CNG) – in 2011.
