NET Trans
    • Fleet Name:  NET Trans
    • Domicile site:  Elizabethton, Greeneville, Bristol and Kingsport, TN
    • Service area:  Nine counties in northeastern TN
    • Fleet purpose:  Service includes door to door, non-emergency transportation to anyone requesting a ride. Fleet is equipped with wheelchair lifts and able to serve customers with disabilities.
    • Alternative fuel or technology:  Propane autogas; PRINS bi-fuel propane systems supplied through an ongoing relationship with Alliance AutoGas
    • About the alt-fuel supplier: Alliance AutoGas is a unique player in the US propane autogas market; they bill themselves as a “complete” solution because they can provide system installs, infrastructure, fuel delivery, and financing for fleets who want to switch to propane with low or no upfront cost
    • When started:  They started talking with Alliance in 2015 and begin installing propane systems in 2016. Fleet now includes six Ford Transit T350 vans that operate out of Elizabethton, and are now expanding the propane fleet into Greeneville and Kingsport. More vehicles and dedicated infrastructure is coming in 2018.
    • Financials:  Utilized partnership with Alliance AutoGas to implement capital cost-free fleet by agreeing to terms with Alliance on propane provision.

  • Leadership:  Candace Gump, Director of NET Trans, has been the one with the vision to make this happen, and has overseen all discussions, decision making and implementation. Sam Ellis works with her on the operations and maintenance of the propane fleet.
  • Vision:  To continue implementing propane as their chosen, cleaner, American fuel across the entire fleet for many of their total 100 vehicles.

  1. Hello, I am trying to verify that you service the area of Greeneville TN 37743, the number located on the website is in Johnson City, TN, and I am just trying to confirm, so that I may speak to the right location that services my area. I happen to live in Greeneville, TN 37743 ( Greene County ) area.

    Thanks your assistance, in this matter of concern.
