BNSF upgraded more than 460 locomotives in 2017 with technology focused on increasing fuel efficiency. More than 60 percent of our active road fleet locomotives utilize an energy management system to maximize fuel efficiency and train handling by optimizing throttle and brake use. Approximately 98 percent of our locomotives are equipped with automatic engine start/stop devices, which prevent unnecessary idling.
The Pacific Northwest is home to more than 4,500 BNSF employees who share our commitment to protecting the environment while safely and efficiently transporting our region’s products to the world.
