DFW Orders Sustainable Shuttle Buses

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has ordered 22 of ElDorado National’s (ENC) 40-foot Axess CNG-powered buses and four of its new 40-foot Axess EVO-BE battery-electric buses.

This order is part of the airport’s ongoing efforts to maintain its status as the first carbon neutral airport in North America.

The new buses are expected to be delivered to DFW in summer 2023.

Ken Buchanan, EVP Revenue Management and Customer Experience at DFW said:

“At DFW, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and leading the industry with our sustainability efforts. Over 70 million travellers pass through our airport every year, and we continue to focus on using renewable energy sources to safely transport them while we focus to reduce carbon emissions and achieve the goal of net-zero by 2030.”

ENC’s Axess vehicles already operate at 33 airports in the US.

The new Axess EVO-BE buses will provide zero-emission transport, featuring 738kWh of battery energy storage.

They will be powered by Proterra’s S-Series battery system thanks to the collaboration between Proterra and ENC, announced earlier this month.

Jason Moore, Vice President and General Manager of ENC said:

“For over 40 years, ENC has been a leader in low-emission and alternative energy buses. We are excited to introduce our next-generation Axess EVO-BE bus and supply one of the largest, most advanced airports in the world with this zero-emission technology.”
