Fleet & Transportation

Hybrid and electric vehicles, efficient driving techniques, and staff carpooling are all methods the District is using to reduce corporate GHGs in transportation.

  • Hybrid and electric vehicles are considered as options for on-going fleet replacement for high-use vehicles. 
  • Replacement fleet vehicles are reduced in engine size where possible providing they still meet operational requirements
  • Efficient driving techniques and analysis of operational vehicle trips to reduce fuel use and vehicle emissions
  • Anti-idling policy and on-going staff education for District vehicles.
  • Shower facilities and bike storage is available at the largest worksites to encourage staff to bike to work. 
  • Level 2 Electric vehicle charging stations have been installed at the Municipal Hall and Gleneagles and Main Community Centres to encourage adoption of electric vehicle technology.
  • Enhanced tracking and reporting of corporate vehicle trips and fleet GHG emissions.
  • Addition of staff carpool parking spots at Municipal Hall to encourage ride sharing.
