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

The University is actively seeking alternative transportation solutions for the fleet as we replace units. There is an effort underway to purchase 100% electric 12-passenger vans that will reduce the number of gas powered 6-passenger vans in use now. We have tested and evaluated 100% electric units of varying sizes.

The website URL where information about the institution's support for alternative fuel and power technology is available:

All full electric vehicles are Cushman Titan electric work vehicles model years 1985-2005.

All E85 or higher ethanol fueled vehicles are all Flex Fuel vehicles.

Majority of campus bus fleet is operated under contract by independent service providers, not the university, and as such are not considered part of the university's official fleet. GW's reported fleet statistics comprise vehicles owned, leased, and/or operated directly by the university.
