INDOOR FUELLING AND SERVICING OF METHANOL TRANSIT BUSES AT WINNIPEG TRANSIT
One potential barrier hindering wide acceptance of methanol fuel is the question of refuelling, storage and maintenance of a fleet of methanol vehicles, since most Canadian transit fleets perform these activities indoors baceuse of climate. This study identifies the risks involved with indoor fuelling, service and storage of methanol-powered transit buses; identified and addressed regulations applicable to indoor fuelling, service and storage; presented various approaches that may permit indoor fuelling, service and storage of methanol-powered buses at the Winnipeg Transit Osborne Street facility; and drew conclusions for other cities in Canada based on the examination for Winnipeg. The report does not examine any implementation strategies nor timetables to initiate the transition from diesel to methanol.
