October 18, 2020. Commercial fleet managers and passenger vehicle owners have a new tool to help them learn more about efforts to increase clean fuel and electric vehicle charging options along the Michigan to Montana I-94 Clean Fuel Corridor.
The Michigan to Montana I-94 Clean Fuel Corridor project recently launched new Facebook and Twitter pages aimed at increasing awareness of the project.
The M2M project supports an alternative fuel corridor along I-94 from Port Huron, Michigan to Billings, Montana. Led by the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) in partnership with Clean Cities coalitions along the route, M2M provides commercial fleets and individual drivers with more fueling sites to serve alternative fuel and electric vehicles. The project is funded in part by a $4.9 million U.S. Department of Energy grant awarded in 2016.
Participating Clean Cities coalitions include Chicago Area Clean Cities, Greater Lansing Area Clean Cities, North Dakota Clean Cities, South Shore Clean Cities, Twin Cities Clean Cities, Wisconsin Clean Cities and Yellowstone-Teton Clean Energy Coalition.
Alternative fuel corridors are federally designated routes on major highways that allow for inter-city, regional and national travel using lower-emission vehicles. The national network of alternative fuel corridors includes sections of nearly 180 heavily traveled interstates and highways in nearly all 50 states and covers more than 135,000 miles of the National Highway System.
