Green Business Spotlight: C-TRAN

coverphoto

We look forward to supporting this great program and collaborating with other members to further improve our own green practices.

Eric Florip, C-TRAN Public Affairs Coordinator

We're happy to welcome C-TRAN, the public transit agency serving Clark County, to the Green Business program!

C-TRAN earned their Green Business certification by demonstrating a commitment to recycling and waste reduction programs, energy efficiency and pollution prevention in its operations. Their certification efforts were spearheaded by an employee-led green team that meets regularly. Some of the agency's green practice, initiatives and efforts include:

  • Hybrid diesel-electric buses for half of their fleet
  • Testing renewable diesel as an alternative fuel source
  • Adding all-electric buses to their fleet in the coming years
  • Installation of public electric vehicle charging stations at their Fisher's Landing Transit Center
  • Installation of energy efficient LED lighting across their facilities, including transit centers
  • Recycling cigarette butts collected at all Vine stations
  • Installation of water bottle filling stations for employees, encouraging use of reusable water bottles


Though they completed their certification in December, it "...doesn't mean C-TRAN is done with our sustainability efforts." With all the great work they've done to become certified, we're excited to see what projects they take on next!​

"When you see the words 'Earth Day Every Day' on the side of a bus, that's not just an empty slogan. We take those words seriously - in the service we provide to the public, and in how we run our day-to-day operation behind the scenes."
