The Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska is slated to add over a dozen propane-autogas-powered buses to its fleet, which transports tourists to see wildlife within the national park.
According to an Alaska Dispatch News report, park officials expect the new buses to be quieter, cheaper and environmentally safer compared to diesel buses. The park’s concessionaire recently won a renewal contract to continue providing transportation services, thanks in large part to the plan for propane buses.
A ROUSH CleanTech spokesperson told Alaska Dispatch News that 14 Blue Bird buses using the company’s autogas fuel system will be delivered to the park in the spring.
The report notes the park plans to add two new electric hybrid shuttles to its fleet, as well. The full report is available here.
