The Propane Education & Research Council announced it has launched a new webpage dedicated to educating paratransit fleets on the ways propane autogas can help transit directors with their service and sustainability, according to PERC's news release.
On the new webpage, PERC said visitors will find a variety of resources, infographics, case studies, and videos detailing how to get started with propane autogas, the benefits of the energy source, and examples from their peers. The site outlines the emissions reductions and cost benefits that allow paratransit fleets to accelerate decarbonization while saving money, according to the news release.
“It’s a myth that paratransit fleets have to purchase expensive electric vehicles to achieve their sustainability goals,” said Steve Whaley, director of autogas business development at PERC. “Propane autogas engines are 90 percent cleaner than mandated EPA standards and they provide the lowest total cost-of-ownership. With propane, paratransit fleets can prioritize providing a safe, clean ride for their passengers while lowering their operating costs. It’s a win for environmental sustainability and a win for the fleet’s financial sustainability.”
On the webpage, transit directors can access a free, downloadable brochure detailing real-world case studies from fleets across the U.S., according to PERC.
