A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

Mail continues to replace gasoline powered vehicles with green solutions (3 remaining all gasoline vehicles).
 All Public Safety patrol vehicles are alternative fuel vehicles (hybrids).  Two ambulances used by CU EMS but maintained by Public Safety are diesel powered. Two escort shuttle buses owned and funded through Campus Services but operated by Public Safety daily between 6 PM and 4 AM are powered by gasoline.
