UPS Ontario—Las Vegas Corridor Extension—Bridging the Gap

This project provided funding to partially offset the cost to purchase liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks and construct a publically accessible LNG fueling station in Las Vegas, Nevada, adjacent to McCarran International Airport and the intersection of Interstates 215 and 15. UPS deployed 48 heavy-duty Class 8 LNG tractor trucks, while the station supports an additional 150 LNG vehicles in UPS’s California, Nevada, and Utah operations. The project also included an outreach effort to generate additional usage at the LNG station and ensure continued viability of the LNG corridor.
