The City supports the use of clean air vehicles and is a leader in implementing alternative fuel technology into the City's fleet of vehicles and equipment. 

Here are some ways we are achieving a greener footprint, and information on how you can join us and where you can fill up!

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)

Thousand Oaks was the first city in Ventura County to purchase Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) passenger vehicles and buses and the first to operate a public/private CNG fueling facility and electrical charging stations. The City has focused on CNG as the most viable fuel source due to availability, fuel characteristics, and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) availability which means vehicles ready to operate on CNG are available from the manufacturer without a retrofit.

The City's Public/private CNG fueling station is located at:

1993 Rancho Conejo Blvd.
Newbury Park, CA 91320

Accepts Visa/MasterCard.
