Portland Airport Zero-Emission Shuttle Transition Plan

In 2023, the Port of Portland (the Port) hired CTE to conduct a feasibility study and create a plan for the transition of its CNG and diesel shuttle bus fleets at Portland International Airport to zero-emission technologies. CTE is actively studying and advising the Port on the advantages, challenges, requirements, and costs associated with battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell electric buses and infrastructure. It will provide a comprehensive transition report to the Port in 2024.
