Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. announced Monday it has signed a five-year contract with SuperShuttle International to provide it with compressed natural gas (CNG) for its vehicles at major airports throughout the United States. SuperShuttle has been operating with natural gas-powered shared-ride vehicles since 1995.

Under the new agreement, SuperShuttle vans will fuel at one of Clean Energy’s existing or future stations located at airports including Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, New York City, Phoenix, and six airports in California (Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Burban, Ontario and Orange County).

For San Francisco International Airport (SFO), SuperShuttle has ordered 40 CNG-powered vans from Clean Energy’s subsidiary, Dallas-based BAF Technologies Inc., which Clean Energy acquired last year (see Daily GPI, Sept. 28, 2009). “The new fleet vans will fuel at the SFO station and other ones in the greater Bay Area,” a Clean Energy spokesperson said.

Clean Energy’s Chief Marketing Officer, James Harger, said SuperShuttle is another example of major national fleet operators switching to natural gas. “They are aware of the impact of harmful vehicle emissions on air and environmental policy, anxious to reign in fuel costs and concerned about reducing foreign oil imports,” Harger said.
