    Austin Awards Airport CNG Station Contract
    The City of Austin, Texas has awarded a 10-year contract to Clean Energy Fuels Corp. to design, build, and maintain a new public access CNG fueling station located adjacent to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The facility will operate 24/7 to support growing fleets of: off-airport parking shuttle fleets operated by The Parking Spot and Airport Fast-Park; on-airport courtesy shuttle vehicles deployed by Ampco System Parking; taxicabs that serve the airport; and private CNG fleet vehicles in the area. Construction of the station is scheduled to begin in February 2010. "The station adds to the airport’s ongoing effort to reduce impact on the environment," said Patti Edwards, Operations Director, City of Austin Aviation Department. "The natural gas station expands clean fuel opportunities for the airport and the region."
    Located in the Texas State Capital, the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport serves more than eight million passengers annually and has 36 nonstop destinations. With more than 750,000 residents, Austin is the 15
    th largest city in the U.S. The recently announced Austin Climate Protection Plan mandates that all facilities, fleets and operations in the city will be carbon-neutral by 2020, and 100 percent of city facilities will be powered by renewable energy by 2012.
