Fleets & Fuels - April 23, 2013

Pub¬≠lic trans¬≠porta¬≠tion is lead¬≠ing the way in green vehi¬≠cles, says the Amer¬≠i¬≠can Pub¬≠lic Trans¬≠porta¬≠tion Asso¬≠ci¬≠a¬≠tion. As of two years ago, 35.6% of all the pub¬≠lic tran¬≠sit bus¬≠es in the Unit¬≠ed States were alter¬≠na¬≠tive¬≠ly pow¬≠ered ‚Äď 18.6% used nat¬≠ur¬≠al gas, 8.8% were hybrids, and 7.9% of pub¬≠lic tran¬≠sit bus¬≠es used biodiesel. Propane is a new, emerg¬≠ing fuel, APTA said, and CNG bus¬≠es play a very impor¬≠tant role.
