Abstract

We propose a bi-criteria binary linear programming model for locating alternative-fuel (AF) refueling stations on a directed transportation network with two conflicting objectives of maximizing the total vehicle-miles traveled (VMT) per year covered by the stations and minimizing the capital cost for building the refueling infrastructure. The proposed model is validated with an application to the Pennsylvania (PA) Turnpike System regarding the location of liquefied natural gas (LNG) refueling stations on existing service plazas. Further analysis is performed to estimate the potential reduction of pollutants on the PA Turnpike as a function of the LNG infrastructure cost.
