"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Has the institution adopted a policy prohibiting idling?:
Yes

A brief description of the policy:

Facility Services’ vehicles shall not sit idling for longer than 5 minutes except in the case of snow removal operations. This policy is consistent with the Massachusetts General Laws (M.G.L. Chapter 90, Section 16A) that state, “no vehicle should idle for longer than 5 minutes unless it is absolutely necessary.”

We also work with Shuttle vendors to prevent idling.
