On the new webpage, propane.com/paratransit, visitors will find a variety of resources, infographics, case studies and videos detailing how to get started with propane autogas, the benefits of the energy source and examples from their peers. The site outlines the emissions reductions and cost benefits that allow paratransit fleets to accelerate decarbonization while saving money.

On the webpage, transit directors can access a free, downloadable brochure detailing case studies from fleets across the country. As the examples show, many fleet owners save up to 50 percent on fuel costs by transitioning to propane autogas. They also reduce carbon emissions by several metric tons over the life of the vehicle, according to PERC.

Today, there are over 7,000 propane autogas paratransit vehicles on the road. Autogas is used in both urban and rural communities, allowing fleets to run routes over 300 miles on a single refuel. With affordable and customizable infrastructure, PERC says, transit directors can work with their propane marketer to develop a propane autogas solution specific to their fleet.
