Rock Region Metro Continues Maintenance Deal With Love's Trillium CNG
(Rock Region Metro)

Rock Region Metro of North Little Rock plans to replace its remaining 43 diesel-fueled buses with compressed natural gas buses by the end of 2025 and has chosen Love's Trillium CNG to continue providing maintenance services for three years.

Love's is based in Oklahoma City, and the contract includes options to extend it for two additional one-year terms — a total of five years.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. 

Trillium was first selected in 2014 to design, build, operate and maintain a new private CNG fueling station for the Rock Region Metro fleet. The station can fuel up to 75 CNG buses daily, and Rock Region Metro added 15 CNG buses to its fleet last year.

"We understand passengers in central Arkansas count on Rock Region to safely get them to work, home or leisure activities, and it's important to us to keep systems performing at their maximum capabilities and to rapidly respond to any request through our 24/7 monitoring service," Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas for Love's, said in a news release.
