City of Bridgeport, ConnecticutThe City of Bridgeport is the largest city in Connecticut. It’s also home to a Mayor with a vision that is “larger than life” and a new big green machine fleet of very large trucks.
Thanks in part to the Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels Project (CTCCFF), Mayor Bill Finch and city leaders are spearheading efforts to retrofit four, existing, heavy-duty diesel dump trucks to clean burning CNG power. The truck conversions are being performed by Baker Equipment of Richmond, Virginia.
The late model International trucks will be converted to CNG one at a time so as not to leave the City without adequate equipment to complete needed services.
In addition to new trucks, the citizens of Bridgeport will also have a new, public access CNG refueling station thanks to the city and the CTCCFF. Co-located at a local Enviro Express, the CNG filling station will offer fleet and public access. This initiative is a large step toward
environmental responsibility and freedom from foreign oil for the residents of the City of
