Idle Reduction

IdleBox is a toolkit of print products, templates, presentations, and information resources to assist with idle reduction projects for fleets with light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles. IdleBox tools can be used for a range of purposes, from printing fact sheets to calculating potential fuel savings to educating and engaging transportation decision makers, fleet managers, sustainability managers, and drivers on the benefits of idle reduction.

Fleet Rightsizing

Fleet rightsizing is a management practice that can help vehicle fleet managers build and maintain sustainable, fuel-efficient fleets. Fleet inventories often grow over time to include vehicles that are highly specialized, rarely used, or unsuitable for current applications. By evaluating fleet size and composition, managers can optimize vehicle use, conserve fuel, reduce emissions, and save money on fuel and maintenance.

State Resources

Transportation is currently the second largest source of GHG emissions in the state-and as Colorado’s electricity sector decarbonizes, transportation will become the greatest contributor of harmful, climate-altering pollution. Colorado is uniquely positioned to lead the transition to cleaner transportation options that will benefit the state for years to come.

National Resources

The Low-No Program provides funding to state and local governmental authorities for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and low-emission transit buses, including acquisition, construction, and leasing of required supporting facilities. 

The AFDC website has extensive tools regarding all types of alternative fuels. Learn about the pros and cons of each type of alt. fuel, locate alt. fuel stations all over the nation, fleet application, laws and incentives, vehicle cost calculators, and much more.

Connect with our national network of local coalitions and stakeholders working to implement alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and fuel-saving strategies.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) published annual data about fuel use and the number of vehicles in inventory for four types of alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) fleets: federal government, state governments, transit agencies, and fuel providers.

EPA gas mileage, safety, air pollution, and greenhouse gas estimates for new and used cars and trucks. Improve the MPG of your vehicle with our gas mileage tips.

Did you ever wonder what reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 1 million metric tons means in every day terms? the greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator can help you understand just that, translating abstract measurements into concrete terms you can understand, such as the annual emissions from cars, households, or power plants.
