What efforts does fleet make toward sustainability and fiscal responsibility?

Fleet is currently analyzing avenues to convert to more multi-use vehicles as technologies become available to assist in lowering total amount of units in our fleet.

In addition, we conduct periodic "Low Use Reviews" to check on the necessity of vehicles that do not see much use.

The Moscow EcoDriver Program was established to teach all operators of City vehicles methods for reducing fuel consumption and proper routine maintenance. We set annual goals for fuel consumption and have halted an annual increase of about 4% and actually reversed the trend. We also have Commercial Driver Training each year to help drivers understand methods of operation to save fuel and maintenance costs.

We outsource yearly safety inspections on bucket trucks, Fire Department ladder truck and ground ladders and truck mounted cranes.
