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

Facilities Management continues to replace its aging fleet with alternate energy powered vehicles. Temple has invested in 3 natural gas pumping stations to fuel the CNG vehicles, 2 pump stations on Main Campus and 1 pump station at Ambler Campus. The addition of the CNG pumping station at Ambler Campus enables Facilities Management to employ new city style CNG buses as the Ambler Shuttle transports. This investment significantly reduces air emissions in the TU Shuttle Bus operation. The installation of 13 diesel oxidation catalysts on the diesel fleet helps to clean the vehicle exhaust of harmful particles.
