Clean Energy to build, operate 3 CNG fueling stations

Posted on January 12, 2010

Parking shuttle and ground transportation operators at major international airports in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, and Las Vegas have contracted with Clean Energy Fuels to design, build and maintain three new airport-adjacent CNG fueling stations. The new public access CNG stations, built on operator-owned properties, will support the transition of airport shuttle fleets to run on natural gas fuel.

Leading U.S. off-airport parking service provider, The Parking Spot (TPS), awarded Clean Energy a contract to build and maintain CNG fueling stations at TPS-owned sites adjacent to Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston International Airports.

Located near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport's Northfield Station, the new TPS public access CNG station is designed to fuel several types of shuttles and other private and public fleets in the area. DFW International Airport is the nation's third busiest, offering nearly 1,750 flights per day and serving 57 million passengers a year.

At Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), the new public access Clean Energy/TPS CNG station will operate 24/7 to serve TPS CNG shuttles as well as fleets owned by other off-airport parking operators, taxis and fleet vehicles in the Northeast Houston area. Ranked as America's eighth largest airport, IAH now serves more than 43 million passengers annually, offering 700-plus flights a day to 170 destinations.

Operating in Las Vegas since 1941, Whittlesea Bell Transportation is the oldest and largest limousine, taxi and private shuttle service company in the area. Bell selected Clean Energy to build and supply a new public access CNG fueling station on a Bell-owned site near Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.

The station will offer convenient access 24/7 to CNG-powered limousines, taxis, shuttle vans and buses that serve airport and major Las Vegas hotel, tourist and business locations. McCarran International is the principal commercial airport serving Las Vegas and Clark County in southern Nevada.
