On May 11, Veolia Transportation offered the city of Baltimore’s first propane-powered taxi ride to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to the company’s headquarters. State and local dignitaries, media and autogas fleet operators were all on hand to promote the benefits of clean, domestically produced propane autogas. “It’s fuel-efficient, friendly for the environment. Long term, it just sustains our workforce and creates jobs and things like that,” Navin Dass of Veolia Transportation said. Check out some photos of the event below!
The Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program is supported by funding from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act and the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities Program. The program is managed and administered by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy and Virginia Clean Cities at James Madison University.
