TravelCenters of America CEO to deliver keynote at ACT Expo

Tom O’Brien, managing director, president and CEO of TravelCenters of America (TA) will deliver the keynote address at this year’s 2013 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo.

ACT Expo will take place in Washington, DC, June 24 to 27. It is the largest conference dedicated to alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in North America. O’Brien will deliver the opening keynote address at the conference on Tuesday, June 25 at 12:45 p.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, site of the 2013 ACT Expo.

In April of this year, TA announced that it, together with fellow ACT Expo sponsor Shell Oil Products U.S., would construct and operate a network of natural gas fueling lanes at existing TA locations along the U.S. Interstate Highway System.

“TA, together with Shell, is putting forth significant strategic effort and investment in reaching for what may be a milestone achievement for the greater acceptance of alternative fuels by commercial vehicles,” said O’Brien. “We believe our network of existing full service travel centers is the perfect backbone upon which to construct the infrastructure to deliver natural gas for commercial over-the-road uses.”
