San José is leading by example by developing a “Green Fleet” policy to guide the transformation of the City’s fleet. The City has implemented the use bio-diesel fuels with the existing fleet and has made positive strides towards acquiring green vehicles while providing support for alternatively fueled vehicles throughout the entire fleet inventory. Work is currently underway to expand the inventory of public EV plug-in stations and access to alternative fueling depots including Compressed Natural Gas.
We encourage the development of smaller, lighter, and alternative fuel vehicles for mass and private transit to reduce adverse impacts on our environment. The City of San José is establishing a center to stimulate the development of such clean, alternative fuel vehicles using Silicon Valley technology.
