A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

Departments requiring vehicles for on-campus use may purchase an electric cart meeting specifications provided by the Facilities Engineering and Planning department's vehicle repair shop. The shop inspects electric carts annually, and all cart drivers must complete the appropriate driver training by the Rice University Police Department. Gasoline-powered carts are only allowed in rare circumstances.
