Two examples of alternative fuel vehicles in use by the City of Fort Worth. The Fleet Division converted the white propane pickup into a propane lube truck using the same cab and chassis with a different bed. The blue vehicle is a hybrid bucket truck.

Fort Worth’s vehicle fleet was recognized with a Bronze Award for leading the way with alternative fuel vehicles and advanced technology vehicles.

The Bronze Award was presented by DFW Clean Cities, a public-private partnership that seeks to advance energy security, protect environmental and public health and stimulate economic development by promoting reduced petroleum consumption and improved air quality, primarily in the transportation sector.

DFW Clean Cities is a program of the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the Regional Transportation Council.

Fort Worth’s fleet, managed by the Property Management Department, includes 1,383 ethanol vehicles, 97 propane vehicles, four propane fueling sites and 77 hybrid/electric or all-electric vehicles. Also, the City of Fort Worth has an anti-idling policy managed through the use of GPS technology on more than 900 vehicles in the fleet.

These vehicles and policies assist in meeting some of the DFW Clean Cities goals of alternative fuel vehicle deployment, AFV fueling infrastructure installation, accelerated sales of hybrid electric vehicles and use of idle reduction technologies for heavy-duty trucks and other vehicles.
