Clean Cities: St. Louis, Missouri
Our success story this week takes us to St. Louis, Missouri, the home of fleet operations for AT&T. In 2009 the telecommunications giant pledged to add 15,000 alternative fuel vehicles in 10 years. In March a milestone was reached when the 8,000th compressed natural gas vehicle arrived. Their CNG fleet ranges from fuel transfer trucks to service tech vans. Most fueling is done at public access CNG stations to support the industry and encourage use. AT&T now operates 10,000 various alt-fuel vehicles including gasoline-electric hybrids, extended-range electrics, and pure electric vehicles.
KATIE DUGAN: We see compressed natural gas as being a step in the right direction. It’s a fuel that we can use today that’s cleaner, that’s cheaper and that’s domestic and that’s available-so putting all those benefits together really helps it make a strong case for us to use CNG in our fleet.
JOHN DAVIS: As a national clean fleets partner, AT&T works closely with the St. Louis clean cities coalition, setting a great example as a global company committed to alternative fuels.
