The fuel at the two stations will be available in both compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to individual and public fleet vehicles.

“Our decision to use 100% Renewable Natural Gas is based upon our ongoing commitment to ensuring we are delivering solutions that help our customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Scott Perry, Vice President of Supply Management and Global Fuel Products, Ryder System, Inc. “With Redeem™ we achieve that with a 100% renewable fuel.”

By making the switch to Redeem, Ryder is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 6,300 metric tons per year using current fuel volumes. This would be the equivalent of removing approximately 1,319 passenger cars from the road annually.

Ryder has more than 40 million miles of experience, 18 strategic natural gas vehicle maintenance markets, and more than 4,000 natural gas vehicle trained personnel.

Ryder has been the pioneer in transitioning their fleets to cleaner fuels and today operates both CNG and LNG vehicles supported by 34 Clean Energy locations.
