Six weeks after a West Haven taxi company opened a compressed natural gas fueling station, a Bloomfield taxi service will unveil a CNG station of its own on Nov. 10.”The infrastructure is growing and making it viable for a fleet to go CNG,” said Marco Henry, owner of Yellow Cab in Bloomfield.Bloomfield’s Yellow Cab and West Haven’s Metro Taxi – which opened its CNG station on Sept. 26 – are participating in the Connecticut Clean Cities Future Fuels Project, which is using $29 million in federal economic recovery grants to install alternative fueling stations throughout the state.

By installing CNG, liquefied natural gas, biodiesel and electric charging stations throughout Connecticut, the Future Fuels Project wants to stimulate the use of alternative fuel vehicles throughout the state, reducing dependency on more heavily polluting gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles.
