Tri Delta Transit Goes All-In with Neste MY Renewable Diesel

Submitted by on December 7, 2017 – 10:13 amNo Comment

by Joseph Bebon (NGT News) Tri Delta Transit, which provides public transportation in Eastern Contra Costa County, Calif., has switched its entire fleet of transit buses from operating on petroleum diesel to using only Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

“Tri Delta Transit is committed to operating our service safely, efficiently and responsibly,” says Jeanne Krieg, CEO at Tri Delta Transit. “By switching to Neste MY renewable diesel, we will reduce our output of greenhouse gases by up to 80 percent.”


In addition, the transit agency reports that complaints about engine smoke have been totally eliminated, even from the older vehicles in the fleet. Tri Delta Transit’s 3 million trips a year are now more sustainable and more rider-friendly because there’s no smoke and fuel odor, eliminated by switching to Neste MY renewable diesel, according to Neste.


“Since changing fuels, we have received zero complaints from drivers regarding vehicle power and reliability, and there has been no change to routine maintenance,” says Kevin Moody, maintenance director at Tri Delta Transit. Moody adds that none of the drivers was told of the switch to renewable diesel, and none of them noticed a difference at all.  READ MORE
