Natural Gas Taxis Get Special Status At DFW


The Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport board of directors has approved a policy whereby taxis that run on compressed natural gas (CNG) can go to the front of the line – literally – to serve passengers.

A report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram notes that the policy has been contentious since it was first raised in 2009, with cab companies and drivers claiming that the privilege CNG taxis would get was unfair and puts traditionally fueled cabs at a severe disadvantage.

The article notes that 137 of the 2,000 cabs licensed to operate at DFW use CNG. The airport itself has a fleet of approximately 600 CNG buses, trucks and cars.
