Fleet & Vehicles
At Dalhousie, we:
- Reduce extra or inefficient fleet vehicles through downsizing or right sizing;

- Support a workplace agreement with CarShare Atlantic;
- Are moving toward more hybrids and electric vehicles;
- Have electric car charging stations on campus;
- Support bicycles where applicable as a fleet vehicle.
A team of engineering students are analyzing green fleet management and technical options for decision-making purposes. Analysis is due by Spring 2021.
