Burbank Bob Hope Airport Launches CNG Shuttle Fleet


In Burbank, Calif., on Monday, airport officials and representatives from MV Transportation Inc. officially launched Burbank Bob Hope Airport’s new fleet of compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered shuttle buses.

In September, the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Commission awarded MV Transportation a $11.97 million, five-year contract to provide courtesy shuttle services with 13 new model-year 2016 CNG vehicles. The shuttles are equipped with NextBus technology providing real-time shuttle arrival information, DriveCam surveillance systems, and MobilEye collision avoidance systems.

According to a Los Angeles Times report, Frank Quintero, president of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Commission, said the new CNG shuttles are  “more nimble and much more clean.”
