    I wish we did this at Fed Ex. I told my senior manager about the new freightliner CNG trucks and he said there also testing some at the San Francisco station. I hope they decide to buy more and we get CNG trucs at my station in Menlo Park. Maybe I can gas up at my station eventually, that would be awesome.
    FYI,
    Anthony

      Just an FYI, Atlanta and Georgia CNG stations are both now managed as part of a Clean Energy-UPS Partnership. We are also developing a new Denver, CO UPS CNG Station for them as well. Awesome project and kudos to UPS for stepping back into the industry in a big way.

        Hey Clean Energy-CO,

        Are those Atlanta and Dallas cng sites for UPS also open to public . . . you know that would be the Right Thing To Do ??

        How about the Denver, CO site for UPS, will it be open to public and only take a credit card to purchase public cng??

        If any of these will be public cng refueling sites (which is EXACTLY what the USA needs), what will the price be??

          Exactly cngacrossamerica!

          Stations with public access and reasonable prices are essential to having natural gas widely accepted as a viable alternative fuel. Look at Utah for example. Questar opened their stations to the public and sells CNG for $0.63 / GGE. What has happened - Utahans have gone nuts for CNG! They're flying around the country, purchasing, and driving vehicles back to Utah. If you build it (the infrastructure), they will come (the consumers and the auto industry)!

          The public speaks ... http://www.cngchat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1122

          (Hopefully the stations will be less than $0.50 below gas prices!!!)

            I have not been involved in the UPS deal but as I understand it Atlanta and Dallas are not open to the public due to the setup of the fleet yards. They are secured areas and stations were already in place and we took over them, updgraded and modified the site for the new vehicles and we now operate and maintain them for UPS.

            Moving forward however that may not be the case. Here in Denver UPS has indicated where they would like the site to be and this will be a ground up site, we would like to add public access at our cost if they are open to providing the space for a public dispenser. We always try to add public access when feasible. Some fleets don't like the liability associated with a public fueling facilitity. But I will let you know as soon as a decision is made on the Denver facility.

            If we are able to persuade UPS Denver to allow us to build out a public dispenser it will be Visa / MC compatible. Price will be the same as our prevailing retail rate for the area.
