- An alternative fuel vehicle is a vehicle that runs on a fuel other than "traditional" petroleum fuels (petrol or diesel); and also refers to any technology of powering an engine that does not involve solely petroleum (e.g. electric car, hybrid electric vehicles, solar powered). Traditional internal combustion vehicles have contributed to local, regional and global problems of air pollution, fallout from airborne pathogens, and changing interactions between the atmosphere and sun, weather effects and effects on plants and oceans. To reduce harmful emissions, alternative mean of transportation can be used, such as bicycles, carpools, buses, or new vehicle technologies. CATA buses are powered by Clean Natural Gas (CNG).
