MILWAUKEE — Go Riteway Transportation Group received a Clean Fuel Champion Award from Wisconsin Clean Cities last week.

Wisconsin Clean Cities presented the award during its 23rd Annual Stakeholder Meeting in Oshkosh. Clean Fuel Champion honorees are recognized for their use and implementation of clean fuel technologies.

Go Riteway, a school bus and commercial bus operator, said it was chosen for the award in recognition of its mission to promote cleaner air and energy security through alternative-fuel development and related strategies.

“We established an Environmental Sustainability Program designed to harmonize our company with the environment,” said Ron Bast, chairman and family owner of Go Riteway. “The process of becoming more ‘green’ is one that continuously evolves, and by following our program we make positive differences to the environment step by step.”

Clean Fuel Champion awards are selected from among Wisconsin Clean Cities members. Go Riteway has been a member and supporter of the nonprofit organization since 2010.

Go Riteway has more than 1,350 employees and 1,090 vehicles, operating out of 18 Wisconsin locations. The company recently opened a new school bus terminal that is equipped with a propane fueling station.

A total of 71 of Go Riteway's school buses run on propane. The company also operates some hybrid-electric school buses.
