Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

UCSC Fleet Services has limited funds to spend on university vehicles. All University departments are required to purchase vehicles through Fleet Services and they have limited funds as well. Fleet is committed to sustainability and has solely been purchasing hybrid sedans like Honda Insights and Nissan Altimas over the past two years. Unfortunately, the cost of buying the next tier of sustainable vehicles (all electric) is quite often outside of Fleet’s and campus departments’ budgets.
