Fort Collins’ ULEV Fleet Services Policy

ULEV and ZEV Vehicles for City Fleet; Including Electric Vehicles

The City of Fort Collins Fleet Services has established a goal that by the year 2008, 75% of light duty vehicles in the City fleet exceed the 1998 ULEV (ultra low emission vehicle) standards. In addition, Fleet Services will work with the Purchasing Department and the Equipment Board to ensure that information about fuel efficient vehicles and equipment is available and has been considered by departments making purchases.

Fleet Services has expressed interest in purchasing electric vehicles, as part of their commitment to improving air quality and meeting their 75% ULEV goal by 2008. A pilot project to evaluate the use of electric vehicles is being considered.
