Jacksonville Motorpool Reduction to Save $1.4M

May 18, 2009

JACKSONVILLE, FL – The City of Jacksonville's reduction of 70 motorpool vehicles is expected to save taxpayer money and cut its carbon footprint, according to the Florida-Times Union.

The move is expected to reduce vehicle replacement costs by at least $1.4 million. It also enabled fleet management to shuffle lightly used vehicles - some were going just 500 miles annually - away from departments that weren't doing much driving.

To handle the combined driving needs of those 70 vehicles, four mid-size cars will be used as loaners for any city employee to use for city business. The user's department will be charged 60 cents a mile, according to the Florida-Times.

The four-car sign-out program is expected to grow as part of a general policy shift to further reduce the city motorpool, which contains more than 3,000 vehicles.
