OAK CREEK, WI - GO Riteway is now operating a total of 21 ROUSH CleanTech Ford E-350 vans fueled by propane autogas at the General Mitchell International Airport in Wisconsin. GO Riteway’s President, Ronald Bast, announced during a ceremony on Nov. 8 that the company is moving toward a more environmentally friendly business model through the use of domestically produced propane autogas, which now fuels 40 percent of the company's fleet.
The event, held at GO Riteway’s new offices in Oak Creek, Wis., included a tour of the company’s new ROUSH CleanTech fleet vehicles and on-site propane autogas fueling facility, which was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds.
“When we were exploring alternative fuel options, ROUSH CleanTech caught our attention due to their experience in the propane autogas field,” said Bast. “ROUSH CleanTech’s highly respected reputation, expertise and performance are why we chose to partner with them.”
Propane may be a viable option for certain fleets looking for an alternative fuel source. While converting a vehicle to a propane system comes with a high initial cost, the system may come with reduced lifecycle costs over the course of that vehicle's life.
