What Our Customers Say

“When you can do something that helps you to make positive changes to the environment and saves you money, that’s something you ought to jump on. MTS will save about $5.8 million over the five to seven-year life cycle of the vehicles and reduce the carbon intensity by 71%.” — Ron Roberts, vice chair, San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (California)

“With a propane fueling infrastructure, propane is the most cost-effective alt fuel system. We saved $9.6 million in fuel costs alone compared with gasoline over the past 7 years. Add in the alt fuel credits and we saved $13.4 million. And that doesn’t include the Florida incentives we received.” — Paul Strobis, director of paratransit, Broward County Transit (Florida)

“We were looking for cleaner emissions, reduced downtime and lower cost per mile. ROUSH CleanTech’s propane-fueled E-450s achieved all these goals.” — Dennis Griffey, maintenance director, Kitsap Transit (Washington)
