Reduce carbon emissions from the City government’s vehicle fleet
As technologies such as electric vehicles, biodiesel, compressed natural gas, gas-electric hybrid, and hydrogen-powered vehicles come to market, they will contribute to the solution. As discussed in more detail in the air quality section of this plan, the City will continue to pursue clean vehicle technology adoption pilots and strategies.
Proper fuel management is paramount to reducing consumption and efficient operations, and the City will introduce new fuel use reporting protocols and anti-idling technologies and enforcement to control consumption.
For vehicles used for City government functions, the City’s current vehicle fleet-share program with Zipcar will be expanded to at least 1,000 vehicles by 2017, up from its current 600 vehicles across five City agencies.
