Six transit fleets including Alliance partner Van Go Transportation of Richmond VA received the 2016 award for Top User of Propane Autogas from the Propane Education & Research Council at the BusCon Expo in Indianapolis this month. The award celebrates fleets creating healthier environments for riders and cities withclean, cost-effective, and domestically-produced propane autogas. Receiving the award for Van Go was Travis Snellings, General Manager.
Van Go Transportation have been partnering with Alliance AutoGas and users of propane autogas since 2012. Sid del Cardayre from Van Go talks about Van Go’s decision to go with autogas. “At first it was an ethical and environmental question based on my desire to have a green company, back in 2012. With cleaner fuel for our vehicles, not only was it better for our environment, but engines were going to break down a lot less often. Also, cleaner burning propane autogas provides less maintenance and a tremendous emission reduction, which exceeds all expectations.”
