Clean Cities: Atlanta, Georgia
Our Success Story this week profiles an off-site airport shuttle bus company in Atlanta, Georgia. The Parking Spot began adding 31 compressed natural gas buses to their 3 lots near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport over two years ago.
The Parking Spot worked with the Clean Cities-Georgia coalition to make the clean-fuel switch as part of a $40 million Metro Atlanta Petroleum Reduction Program funded in part by the Department of Energy. The Atlanta program included nearly $15 million in assistance to field over 200 alternative and advanced technology vehicles, six CNG refueling stations, and a landfill gas to renewable natural gas processing facility.
Since 2012 the company estimates they have displaced over 725,000 gallons of petroleum fuel. It’s a “good spot” to be in as the company considers adding more alternative fuel buses to other Parking Spot locations around the country.
