SuperShuttle/ExecuCar become the cleanest shared-ride van, town car, and bus fleet in Fort Collins

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SuperShuttle International, the largest shared-ride provider in the US, is rebuilding its Fort Collins fleet of shared ride vans, buses and town cars, making its Fort Collins fleet the cleanest ground transportation operator in the area.

Fort Collins is re-building its fleet of shared-ride vans, buses, and town cars with propane autogas fuel system conversions by ROUSH CleanTech and fueling by Ferrell Autogas. Other vehicles in the SuperShuttle fleet have also been converted to bio-diesel and E-85, making SuperShuttle the cleanest shared-ride transportation provider in Fort Collins.

By the Numbers:

  • 7,800 fewer gallons of gasoline burned per year, per van by switching to propane autogas
  • 35,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions reduced per van each year

In 2009, SuperShuttle, a recognized name in the airport ground transportation and shared-ride business, turned their trademark blue and yellow shuttle vans "green" by incorporating propane autogas vehicles into their fleet. The most widely used alternative fuel and the world's third most common engine fuel, propane autogas produces 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, up to 60 percent less carbon monoxide, up to 25 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and fewer particulate emissions when compared to gasoline.

"SuperShuttle is the largest national shared-ride organization in the U.S. Sharing rides is considered environmentally friendly, because combining rides reduces our carbon footprint and reduces the congestion on our roadways," said Shawn Campbell, General Manager for SuperShuttle and ExecuCar in Northern Colorado.  "It makes sense to step up our game with alternative fuels like propane, particularly in markets where the environment is a major concern, such as the Fort Collins/Estes Park area."  

During its lifecycle, each SuperShuttle propane autogas shuttle will release 175,000 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than it would have operating on gasoline. All ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas powered vehicles meet stringent certification standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB).
