UPMC said it is replacing 20 of its diesel shuttle buses with buses that run on cleaner-burning compressed natural gas.

The largest hospital system in Western Pennsylvania used a $500,000 grant from the state Department of Environmental Protection to offset the cost of the new buses. Thirteen buses are running and UPMC said it plans to add the other seven by next fall. They are used to transport employees to and from parking areas.

It will install six electric-vehicle charging stations at four of its hospitals, doubling the number of stations it operates.
