LeeTran, the public transit agency for Lee County, Fla., has added more propane-autogas-fueled shuttles to its paratransit fleet this month for a 20% reduction in fuel costs, according to a ROUSH CleanTech release. Now, with a propane fleet of 20 vehicles, LeeTran says 45% of its paratransit fleet is powered by alternative fuel.
4.20.2016 — With a 20 percent reduction in fuel costs, LeeTran has added more propane autogas-fueled shuttles to its paratransit fleet this month. These new vehicles increase the public transit agency’s propane fleet to 20, or 45 percent of its entire paratransit fleet.
Are alternative fuels like propane autogas here to stay? That was the most frequently asked question at last week’s Alternative Clean Technology (ACT) Expo, the largest clean fleet event of the year.
The first production propane-powered Ford F-750 with a 3,200-gallon barrel will be on display during the ACT Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif., this coming Monday through Thursday.
