Clean Energy to supply Valley Metro transit fleet

Posted on June 10, 2009

Clean Energy  received a new three-year contract from the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department  to supply the city’s Valley Metro Transit Fleet with liquefied natural gas (LNG) to power its fleet of 400-plus LNG buses. When the new contract takes effect July 1, 2009, Clean Energy will begin delivering approximately six million gasoline gallon equivalents of fuel annually to three fueling sites.

“With this new contract, the city of Phoenix Valley Metro fleet now ranks as our largest LNG customer. Overall at transit agencies across the nation, Clean Energy supplies natural gas fuel for 4,000 buses daily," said James Harger, sr. VP and chief marketing officer for Clean Energy.

The Phoenix Public Transit Department is a member of Valley Metro, an organization of 14 local governments that provides or funds transit services in the greater Phoenix metropolitan and surrounding areas. Phoenix deploys the largest fleet of clean-burning LNG transit buses in the U.S. to cover its 517 square miles of area plus neighboring cities.
