Washington, D.C. – This week’s $395 million agreement for the purchase of 772 clean diesel commuter coaches by New Jersey Transit – America’s third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit – is yet another example of major transit agencies recognizing the economic, safety and environmental benefits of advanced clean diesel technology, said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum(http://www.dieselforum.org/).

Washington, D.C. – With diesel fuel prices dipping to the lowest levels since 2009 the U.S. vehicle market is prime for potential market increases as several new 2016 clean diesel cars and pickup trucks prepare to hit showrooms in the coming months, according to Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum. “The major decreases in diesel prices have emerged at a perfect time for drivers as almost 20 new clean diesel cars and pickup trucks are preparing to enter the U.S. market,” Schaeffer said. “And when you combine the lower cost of diesel fuel along with its 20 to 40 percent higher fuel efficiency than gasoline, clean diesel vehicles make more economic sense for buyers than ever."
Washington, D.C. – This month’s 10-year anniversary of the United States-India Partnership highlights shared strategies for advancing economic opportunity and collaborating on climate change and clean air.
