SuperShuttle Celebrates Deployment of 75th Alternative Fuel Vehicle at Phoenix Event

PHOENIX (Nov. 8, 2012) – Proving that transporting people can be both economical and environmentally friendly, SuperShuttle celebrated the unveiling of its 75th propane autogas shuttle today. The shared-ride and airport transportation provider has operated propane autogas vehicles since 2009. In attendance were area councilmembers, Michael Johnson and Jim Waring; Valley of the Sun Clean Cities envoys; and industry representatives from the National Propane Gas Association and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The event, “Shuttling Arizona to a Cleaner Future,” showcased the benefits of propane autogas as a clean, cost-effective and American-made alternative fuel that enables the company to reduce its carbon footprint with every mile.

"Sharing rides is considered environmentally friendly, because combining rides reduces our carbon footprint and reduces the congestion on our roadways,” said Dave Bird, executive vice president of operations for SuperShuttle International. “It makes sense to step up our game with alternative fuels like propane, particularly in markets where air pollution is a major concern, such as Phoenix.”
