Dan Gibson Clean Cities Success Story: City of Columbus

Clean Cities is a government-industry partnership sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE)’s Vehicle Technologies Program. With almost 90 local coalitions and more than 5,700 stakeholders, Clean Cities’ mission is to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector. We’ve written about Clean Cities a few times in the past.

Their latest success story comes from the City of Columbus. The city has integrated CNG/gasoline light-duty trucks and a new CNG refuse truck into its daily operations. They’ve been so impressed with the vehicles that they plan to add 21 more CNG trucks by 2011. They’re also building a new CNG fueling station to go along with the vehicles.
