Airports own and contract fleets to transport passengers, staff, and goods by on- and off-road vehicles. Introduction. Transit operations play an important role in greenhouse gas reductions and air quality are more than transit agencies in the United States, with nea buses in the national and regional levels, a low-emission or zero-emission transit fleet would curb both greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air by: NewBusFuel is a study funded by Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking with the goal of resolving the knowledge gap for establishment of large scale hydrogen refuelling infrastructure for fuel cell buses – silent electric buses with long driving range and with zero local emissions.

VW Funds Help School Bus Operators Expand Alt-Fuel Fleets. For many operations, the VW mitigation trust has been a major boost in moving forward with alternative-fuel buses.

Adding alternative-fuel vehicles to the Lotus fleet may seem like a good idea up front, but before the company proceeds with this initiative, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) requested more information and research to determine if this is a feasible option for the company.

Challenges utilising alternative fuels for buses The “Poo” bus – bio-methane powered In the case of gases there is a requirement to have either a storage system to hold the gases at high pressure to ensure that the gas is stored in a liquid form or to have a compressor system to compress natural gas into a liquid format.

Fleet Propane Conversion - Side by Side Comparison: Propane Vs CNG. Fleet managers have two primary options when looking at alternative fuels: fleet propane conversion or compressed natural gas ().A fleet propane conversion or CNG conversion is a substantial investment of time and resources, making it essential that you perform adequate research before deciding which way to take your fleet.
