The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) announced on Oct. 2 at the Green Fleet Conference & Expo that Go Airport Express has won its Propane Autogas Fleet Award.

Go Airport Express operates 30 Roush CleanTech Ford E-350 propane-autogas-fueled vans between Chicago’s downtown hotels and its airports. Go Airport Express began as a carriage service in 1853.

“Go Airport Express is pleased to use propane autogas to fuel its vans,” said Robert Hann, VP of marketing for Go Airport Express. “Propane autogas lowers our operating costs, emits fewer pollutants and provides a great ride for our customers. Thank you, PERC, for honoring Go Airport Express with the Propane Autogas Fleet award.”

Propane autogas vehicles emit up to 60% less carbon monoxide than gas-powered vehicles, while costing less to operate and providing the same horsepower, torque, towing and range, according to PERC. As well, about 90% of all propane autogas consumed in the United States is made in America.
