December 7, 2005

SAN ANTONIO, TX — In order to reduce gas consumption and help improve air quality in San Antonio, City Council approved the purchase of 39 new 2006 Toyota Prius hybrids, according to the San Antonio Business Journal. The hybrids will be used to replace administrative vehicles in the city’s fleet that are more than 10 years old or have more than 96,000 miles. San Antonio already has 26 hybrid sedans. The city has also purchased ultra-low sulfur diesel for its truck fleet, compressed natural gas for River Walk maintenance barges and equipment, and cleaner-burning propane for 240 city vehicles.
