In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, all four of the King of Prussia District’s commuter shuttle buses – named the connector – were converted from gasoline to Propane AutoGas.

King of Prussia-based King Limousine and Transportation Services, Inc. and Sharp Energy, a subsidiary of Chesapeake Utilities Corporation, assisted with the conversion.

Cleaner and less expensive than gasoline, American‐made Propane AutoGas is a viable alternative fuel for light duty vehicles. Propane-powered vehicles produce lower emissions and pollutants than gasoline-powered vehicles.

With Propane AutoGas, the connector shuttles will produce:

  • More than 20 percent less carbon monoxide
  • 40 percent less in nitrogen oxides
  • 10 percent less carbon dioxide

“We launched the connector commuter shuttle service as the first step in our long‐range plan to provide King of Prussia employees with alternative transportation options,” said Eric Goldstein, King of Prussia District Executive Director.

“Determined to have clean and cost-effective vehicles, KOP-BID was thrilled to partner with King and Sharp Energy on this energy-efficient conversion.”
