    Lauren Tyler for NGTNews 18 Oct 2016 - AmeriPride Services, a textile rental services and supply company in North America, says it received the first of 20 CNG step vans at its Vancouver B.C. branch in an expansion of its alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) program. The company’s new CNG vehicles are manufactured by Freightliner Custom Chassis and Morgan Olson, with the conversion completed by Green Alternative Systems. AmeriPride notes that the vehicles are powered by a General Motors 6 L engine, and the tanks have 52 usable gallons of capacity.

    AmeriPride says that it chose the Vancouver market for this initiative based on incentive funding provided by FortisBC that assisted with the costs of CNG conversion for the vehicles. In addition, FortisBC made upgrades to its local CNG fueling infrastructure. Once the new CNG trucks are incorporated into its fleet operations, AmeriPride will have a total of 36 CNG trucks, 16 propane trucks and two electric vehicles in operation across the company, with more to come in the upcoming year:
