LOS ANGELES, July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperShuttle has added 23 new compressed natural gas (CNG) eight-passenger vans to its Southern California fleet, furthering its commitment to being the most environmentally sound way to get to and from the airport.
The Clean Transportation Funding from The Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) provided $225,000 in funding to assist SuperShuttle in converting 23 of its existing vans to run on CNG through the MSRC's Near-Zero Emission Medium- and Medium-Heavy Duty Incentives Program. The program provides funding to purchase the lowest-emitting engine technologies commercially available.
SuperShuttle's newly converted eight-passenger Ford E350 CNG vans emit less carbon than any other fossil fuel, and thus produce lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per vehicle-mile traveled. These clean fuel vans serve LAX, Long Beach, Ontario and John Wayne Airports.
The vans are operated by independent franchisees and SuperShuttle is always looking for ways to help its small business owners obtain more affordable equipment. "The cost for CNG fuel is significantly less than traditional fuel."
SuperShuttle International, based in Phoenix, is a division of Veolia Transportation On Demand. SuperShuttle serves over 40 airports, carrying more than eight million passengers a year. SuperShuttle also provides ExecuCar (sedan service) at all airports served by SuperShuttle including some of the largest in the country: Los Angeles, New York, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. SuperShuttle is also available in Paris, France, Cancun and Los Cabos, Mexico. ExecuCar is available in over 70 airports.
