Pasadena's ‘Green Fleet' Is Growing

August 1, 2007

PASADENA, CA – Hybrid and alternative-fuel vehicles are popping up everywhere in the City of Pasadena’s fleet, from the city’s parking enforcement vehicles to its code compliance cars to the ARTS buses.

The Pasadena Fire Department expects delivery of two $20,000 Toyota Priuses for use by fire-prevention inspectors, and the City Council is considering funding a compressed natural gas fueling station at the city yards for its CNG vehicles.

It’s all part of the United Nations’ Environmental Accords initiative that city council members signed on to a few years ago.

“It goes back to talking about the whole `green initiative,’” said Councilman Steve Madison, a Prius hybrid car owner. “I know the city owns 700-800 vehicles, and I know we talk about trying to move greener vehicles, be that cleaner fuel or hybrids. Is it enough? There’s certainly always room for improvement.”
