SuperShuttle Teams With Clean Energy For Greener Fueling

Posted on May 11, 2010

SuperShuttle vans will fuel up at existing and future public access Clean Energy CNG stations located at airports nationwide.

SEAL BEACH, Calif. - Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has contracted with SuperShuttle International, a shared-ride ground transportation operator, to provide compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling services to SuperShuttle vans operating at major U.S. airports nationwide.

Under the terms of the new five-year fuel agreement, SuperShuttle vans will fuel up at existing and future public access Clean Energy CNG stations located at airports in Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, New York City, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, among others.

As part of the initial deployment, SuperShuttle ordered 40 new CNG vans for San Francisco International Airport (SFO) through BAF, Clean Energy's subsidiary. The new fleet will fuel at Clean Energy's SFO station and its growing Bay Area network.

"Aware of the impact of harmful vehicle emissions on air and environmental quality, anxious to reign in fuel costs, and concerned about reducing foreign oil imports, allied airport service providers like SuperShuttle are actively transitioning their fleets to natural gas fuel," said James Harger, Chief Marketing Officer of Clean Energy.

"SuperShuttle first deployed natural gas shared-ride ground transportation vans in the mid-1990s, setting a powerful example for America's fleet operators to follow. The company deserves special commendation for its leadership in the growing national movement to switch vehicle fleets to clean-burning, domestic, cost-efficient natural gas power," Harger said.

Costing less than diesel or gasoline, natural gas fuel produces up to 30% less greenhouse gas emissions in light-duty vehicles, and up to 23%-percent lower greenhouse gas emissions in medium to heavy-duty applications. Department of Energy reports estimate that 98% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. is sourced in the U.S. and Canada.
