Texas Triangle Growth and Demand ImpactTexas Triangle Growth and Demand Impact Texas Legislation Established Natural Gas Transportation Corridor in the 2010 Legislature. Senate Bill 20 establishes a natural gas transportation corridor in the rapidly expanding Texas Triangle, which encompasses Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, by increasing the number of natural gas-refueling stations, supporting the use of natural gas-powered trucks across the state.

Texas Fleets Turning to NGVsTexas Fleets Turning to NGVs Houston-based WM announced it will convert 100% of its nationwide fleet to CNG (18,342 trucks). It recently opened a public-access full retail station in Conroe, TX along the CTT. Texas-based fleets such as Central Freight (Waco), Sysco (Houston), Frito Lay (Plano), Waste Management (Houston) and other Fortune 100 fleets like UPS are now investing in natural gas vehicle programs in Texas. ANGA’s efforts spurred increased coordination for public infrastructure sharing and directly led to grant submittals and NGV program growth. Texas fleets overall are becoming leaders in NGV program efforts. UPS was awarded two natural gas stations in Texas (Houston and San Antonio) through SB 375 funding, and is coordinating with a partner for another station project in the Dallas area Source: American Natural Gas Association (ANGA)
