Cincinnati Transit Fleet Says it Saved Money With Biodiesel

January 17, 2007

CINCINNATI, OH – Approximately 20 percent of downtown Cincinnati’s workforce commutes on buses fueled by biodiesel blends, according to Metro, a fixed-route bus service in southwest Ohio. While the use of biodiesel is typically tied with environmental friendliness, it’s also saving Metro some money, according to Biodiesel Magazine.

Metro Chief Communications Officer Sallie Hilvers told BiodieselMagazine.com that the use of biodiesel blends saved Metro approximately $450,000 in 2006 when compared to straight petroleum diesel fuel.
