Fleet & Vehicles

At Dalhousie, we:  

  • Reduce extra or inefficient fleet vehicles through downsizing or right sizing;
  • Install GPS units in vehicles to support fuel efficient driving and safety;
  • Purchase vehicles that are low-emitting and fuel efficient. Definitions and information are provided by NRCan fuel emissions guide and the Office of Sustainability;
  • 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.
