Re: Alternative fuels assistance requested

There's a December 1999 GAO Report called "Mass Transit:  Use of Alternative
Fuels in Transit Buses" that you might find useful.  It has a lot of
economic data and some emissions information.  The fax number for ordering
GAO documents is 1-202-512-6061.

Subject: Alternative fuels assistance requested

We are looking into the cost and benefits of supporting an alternative fuels
program for fleets.  Has anyone conducted a study of the costs for
alternative fueled busses (school or city), delivery vans, or airport
shuttles that run on CNG, propane, or ethanol and the emission reductions
achieved?  We are hoping we can use as a baseline a study that has already
been done.

Also, has anyone done a study on what kind of utilization can be achieved
through increasing the alternative fuels infrastructure?

I appreciate any material on studies (figures!!!) that you could email me.
