Ohio State University - Campus Area Bus Service (CABS)

Campus Area Bus Service (CABS)

Client: Ohio State University

The Ohio State University constructed this large cascade fast fill station to serve their fleet of Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) domiciled on site. The station was designed to provide high speed fueling of the campus transit buses but also to fuel miscellaneous other campus vehicles both light and heavy duty. Marathon’s design philosophy emphasizes user convenience and high speed fueling to ensure a positive user experience at the dispenser. Although this station was designed to provide high performance as well as high reliability and safety, it was designed and constructed within a very tight budget.

Cascade fast fill stations are designed to provide high speed fueling during peak periods such as morning roll-out and afternoon roll-in. Cascade fast fill is well suited to fleets of light duty vehicles, fleets that fuel randomly or in several peaks during the day or where peak fueling occurs over a limited period of time such as 60 to 90 minutes. Cascade fast fill stations tend to include larger and more complex equipment than time fill stations but provide a high degree of flexibility in vehicle fueling.
