City of Austin to Install CNG Station at Airport

January 04, 2010

AUSTIN, TX - The City of Austin, Texas has awarded a 10-year contract to Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to design, build, and maintain a new public access compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station located adjacent to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Construction is scheduled to begin in February.

The facility will operate 24/7 to support growing fleets of off-airport parking shuttle fleets operated by The Parking Spot and Airport Fast-Park, on-airport courtesy shuttle vehicles deployed by Ampco System Parking, taxicabs that serve the airport, and private CNG fleet vehicles in the area.

"The station adds to the airport's ongoing effort to reduce impact on the environment," said Patti Edwards, operations director, City of Austin Aviation Department. "The natural gas station expands clean fuel opportunities for the airport and the region."

The recently announced Austin Climate Protection Plan mandates that all facilities, fleets, and operations in the city will be carbon-neutral by 2020, and 100 percent of city facilities will be powered by renewable energy by 2012.
