Clean Energy wins Golden Gate contract

Posted on April 30, 2008

Clean Energy Fuels Corp. was awarded a contract to supply compressed

natural gas (CNG) fuel and provide operations and maintenance for the fueling station located near the base of the Golden Gate Bridge in the Presidio. The station currently provides fuel for shuttle buses serving residents of and tourists at the Presidio, adjacent to the city's Marina District.

The agreement calls for opening the station to full public use by taxis and shuttles serving San Francisco that have grown in size since Mayor Gavin Newsom’s “Green Taxi Program” was launched. An estimated 1,500 taxis serve the city currently, of which approximately 200 already are hybrid or CNG vehicles. 

Mayor Newsom's office expects the Green Taxi Program to result in a taxi fleet that is 100 percent CNG vehicles or hybrids by 2011.
