EF-11: Establish fuel-efficient municipal vehicle fleets
Encourage government fleets to maximize miles per gallon (MPG) fuel efficiency for all non-specialty vehicle procurement.
Develop a vehicle procurement process that ensures city- and county-owned vehicles increase their MPG by 5% annually per vehicle class whenever higher MPG vehicles are available. Use sources such as the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Vehicle Guide as a procurement guide and include the cost of carbon emissions in the life-cycle cost analysis process.
Encourage transit agencies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by procuring renewable fuel and electric buses.
