The liquefied-to-compressed natural gas stations are outfitted with two compressed and one liquefied natural gas pump. The LNG and CNG pumps are available for large commercial vehicles, and a CNG pump will also be available for passenger vehicles.
“The completion of these two LCNG fueling stations is a critical milestone demonstrating Ryder’s commitment to the deployment of alternative fuel vehicles,” Ryder’s Robert Sanchez said in a statement. "We are proud to make this investment in fueling infrastructure, which will further support the wider adoption of natural gas vehicles for commercial transportation.”
