Twenty-one Roush CleanTech Ford E-350 vans fueled by propane autogas are now serving as ground transportation vehicles for Wisconsin’s General Mitchell International Airport. GO Riteway, a Wisconsin airport transportation provider, announced the move at an unveiling ceremony held at GO Riteway’s new offices in Oak Creek.
“When we were exploring alternative fuel options, Roush CleanTech caught our attention due to their experience in the propane autogas field,” said Ronald Bast, president of GO Riteway. “Roush CleanTech’s highly respected reputation, expertise and performance are why we chose to partner with them.”
According to Bast, the company is moving toward a more environmentally-friendly business model through the use of domestically produced propane autogas, which now fuels 40% of its fleet.
“Due to air-quality regulations, airport authorities across the country are looking for cleaner, lower-emissions solutions for companies that operate equipment on and around airport property,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales & marketing for Roush CleanTech, who was onsite for the ceremony. “Roush CleanTech propane autogas vehicles immediately deliver on the need for a clean-burning alternative to gasoline and diesel, while helping to wean our country from foreign sources of energy.”
