In our airport operations, we were the first major player in our industry to shift our fleet of airport shuttle buses to 5 percent biodiesel (B5). 98 percent of our shuttle buses run on clearer fuel as of 2015.
COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS (CNG)Enterprise has incorporated about 40 CNG-fueled shuttles into our airport shuttle bus fleet in select markets throughout the U.S., including Los Angeles and St. Louis. Additionally, we are also providing a few CNG trucks to one of our Enterprise Commercial Truck business partners (Orange Courier, Inc.) in Santa Ana, CA.
Enterprise’s decision to operate CNG shuttle buses supports the company’s long-term strategy to embrace clean fuels and engine technologies – which, in turn, helps grow the market for alternative fuels. To that end, we work with all the manufactures to socialize and expose consumers to new vehicle technology. However, we must first make sure there is a fuel source wherever the vehicles are placed.
