Metro Taxi Station

WEST HAVEN CONNECTICUT

The City of West Haven is celebrated the opening of the cities’ first Compressed Natural Gas fleet fueling station at the headquarters of Metro Taxi on Monday, September 26, 2011. The Clean Energy station will provide fleet and public fueling of CNG and is the first station in Connecticut built by Clean Energy. This opening marks a significant advance forward for Alternative Fuels in the state of Connecticut and the entire Northeast Region.

Metro Taxi operates the largest taxi fleet in the state and, as part of this new station opening, will also be launching the first in-state fleet of purpose-built, wheelchair friendly, ADA compliant, low emission taxis known as the “MV-1”, ready to serve the Disability Community. In addition to the MV-1, Metro Taxi will launch into service CNG-fueled Ford Transit Connects and Honda Civics. By year’s end, Metro Taxi will deploy 110 new CNG taxis as part of the project.
