PLU Facilities Management has a plan to reduce the impacts from the daily transportation needs to service the campus. Efforts have been made to replace older fleet vehicles with more fuel efficient models. In 2009, PLU Facilities added Prius and Scion cars to their fleet, replacing older 15-passenger vans. There is a standing goal of all campus vehicles being electric. For on-campus use, electric utility carts and vehicles have been purchased to reduce emissions.
