 Chicago transport provider touts propane autogas

Chicago-based GO Airport Express, which transports passengers to and from O'Hare International Airport, is enjoying the economic and environmental benefits of propane autogas. Last year, the company decided to roll out 30 Ford E-350 vans that run on autogas and unveiled plans to eventually convert its entire fleet to autogas or other alternative fuels. Because of this, the company was recognized by the Propane Education & Research Council and was included in Green Fleet's Sustainability All-Stars in 2012. GreenFleetMagazine.com (1/10)
