NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE) - Get Report were jumping 5.84% to $4.62 on heavy trading volume late Thursday morning after the Newport Beach, CA-based company was awarded a multi-year contract with the Washington, DC Metro Area Transit Authority.

The natural gas provider will deliver alternative fuel for compressed natural gas (CNG) transit vehicles.

Clean Energy's agreement covers two transit stations in the metro DC area that supply more than 580 compressed natural gas vehicles, according to a company statement.

The two stations require about six million gasoline gallon equivalents annually.

Washington's transit authority services more than four million people across the region.
