Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features  research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 85: Alternative Fuels in Airport Fleets and Synthesis 89: Clean Vehicles, Fuels, and Practices for Airport Private Ground Transportation Providers.

The research from these two companion syntheses may help airport operators make smart choices for alternative fuels and clean vehicle policies at airports. The presenters will address how to use alternative fuels in airport-owned or operated fleets, including maintenance and facilities vehicles, security vehicles, and shuttles. They will discuss battery electric vehicles, hydrogen, biofuels, compressed natural gas, renewable diesel, and renewable natural gas.

The presenters will also cover public-use airports implementing clean vehicle policies for private ground transportation (GT) operators, and discuss challenges and best practices. They will focus on several types of clean vehicle policies and how airports apply them to various private GT operators at the airport such as taxicabs, shared van rides, hotel/parking shuttles, scheduled airport service, transportation network companies (TNCs), and other providers.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
