By 2007, Snohomish County’s diesel-powered “working wheels” — from buses and semi-trucks to bulldozers and excavators — will be required to meet new local and national sulfur standards designed to eliminate 90 percent or more of today’s toxic exhaust gases and fine particulates.
Community Transit is already running its 308-bus fleet on the new cleaner-burning diesel fuel, adding to operating costs, but “the overall benefit to the people of Snohomish County is priceless,” said transportation agency spokesperson Tom Pearce.
Community Transit also has begun installing retrofit devices on some of its buses to recirculate and reburn fine particulates in preparation to meet the 2007 EPA diesel-engine exhaust standards, he said.
