Shuttle-Bus Company Adds CNG-Powered E-350s to Its Fleet

SuperShuttle International – a division of Veolia Transportation that provides service to dozens of airports, including LAX, JFK, Dallas/Ft. Worth and San Francisco – has deployed 23 new natural gas vehicles in its fleet.

The NGVs are converted eight-passenger Ford E-350 vans that are operating in Southern California, at LAX, Long Beach, Ontario and John Wayne airports. All of the vans use compressed natural gas (CNG) as a fuel.

The Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) provided $225,000 in funding to assist SuperShuttle in converting these 23 vans to CNG through the MSRC's Near-Zero Emission Medium- and Medium-Heavy-Duty Incentives Program.

SuperShuttle, which is based in Phoenix, also has a significant fleet of propane autogas vehicles. About 200 Ford E-350 vans with ROUSH CleanTech autogas systems are in use in the company's fleets in places such as Phoenix, Denver and Orlando. SuperShuttle debuted its first propane vehicles in 2009.
