Mont-Tremblant: a first public transport line powered by compressed renewable natural gas in Quebec

Mont-Tremblant is taking a historic step in its transition to more sustainable mobility with the launch of the first public transportation line powered by compressed renewable natural gas (CRNG) in Quebec.

A press conference was held yesterday for this big announcement.

The Galland Group, with the support of the Government of Quebec and Investissement-Québec, invested more than $7 million in the acquisition of five Nova Bus buses at the GNRC and the construction of a new pumping station at the GNRC. This station, located in Mont-Blanc and connected to the Énergir network, provides power to the GNRC necessary for buses now circulating in the streets of Mont-Tremblant.

The GNRC used to power these buses is renewable energy from biomethanization, recovering residual organic materials for the production of renewable energy. This innovation helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote a healthier environment for the region.

“This first carbon-neutral public transport line in Mont-Tremblant is an important step towards sustainable mobility. We must increase initiatives of this type if we want to achieve our GHG reduction objectives. » Pierre Fitzgibbon, Minister of Economy, Innovation and Energy, Minister responsible for Regional Economic Development and Minister responsible for the Metropolis and the Montreal region.
