LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2018--AVM  today announces a memo of understanding with Airport Valet Express to purchase 12 of AVM’s all-electric vans and SUVs. Airport Valet Express provides conventional day tours and bus service for the 120-mile route between Bakersfield, California and Los Angeles International Airport. Airport Valet Express will be using the new AVM vehicles to shuttle customers to and from their homes and Airport Valet Express’ welcoming terminal lounge.

“Adding AVM’s electric vehicles to our fleet makes more than good business sense,” says Phil Rudnick, founder and principle “Kindness Ambassador” of Airport Valet Express. “Bakersfield is a designated non-attainment area which means we have more than our share of hydrofluorocarbons. Providing last-mile transport with zero environmental impact is in keeping with our Kindness Pledge of Always with Community in Mind."

“Doing right is what Phil’s shuttle service is all about,” adds AVM CEO Larry Brennan. “Airport Valet Express not only provides free airport shuttle services to active military families, the company also shuttles and chaperones at-risk children to the beach once a week for free. Many of these children have never been to the beach before these visits. I am proud to partner with Phil and extend his extraordinary kindness to his local environment as well.”
