The Parking Spot to Trial Electric Shuttle at LAX

Near-airport parking company, The Parking Spot has unveiled its first 100 percent electric shuttle bus, which will serve passengers travelling to and from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The Parking Spot’s shuttles at LAX are currently powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), which is 20 percent more efficient than gasoline. Each new electric shuttle will now further reduce The Parking Spot’s greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 45,000 pounds each year.

Jeff Foland, President and CEO of The Parking Spot said:

“We understand how important it is to keep people moving with sustainable travel options. We are excited by this important step in the process and are progressing down the path toward meaningful carbon footprint reduction.”

The electric shuttle was developed in partnership with Global Transportation Solutions to provide customers at LAX with more sustainable transportation options.

The Parking Spot also has plans to add additional electric shuttles to its fleet to further reduce the company’s and travellers’ carbon footprints.

This service offers customers an easy and convenient parking solution away from the competitive airport facilities.

However, LAX anticipates that congestion from private cars parking within the airport grounds will be further reduced once the automated people mover is operational in 2023. The train cars for this service will also be powered by electricity to make airport ground transportation more sustainable.
