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

> The university is working with a local high school to process spent cooking oil into biofuel. Currently, the vehicles using this biofuel are not owned by the university, but rather Bon Appetit, our foodservice provider.

> Since 2009, WashU has a no-idling policy to help reduce the pollution caused by vehicles running when parked or waiting for passengers. In 2016, signage has been displayed near loading docks and bus stops where diesel vehicles are likely to pause. Additional signage has been placed in key locations across campus to maximize awareness of idling policies.

Additional documentation to support the submission:

This data includes vehicles used across campuses (Danforth, Medical School, Tyson Research Center), except for the vehicles leased to operate WUSM shuttles. Most vehicles are used by Facilities departments, Police Departments, Transportation Services, and Residential Life. "Club cars" are tracked separately and were added manually. There are 46 club cars, 23 of which are fully electric--this is reflected in the figures above.
