What is Fleets for the Future?
Fleets for the Future (F4F) is a national partnership of regional councils, Clean Cities coalitions, and industry experts led by the National Association of Regional Councils. F4F is coordinating a national procurement initiative designed to consolidate bulk orders of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and infrastructure for public fleets across the country.
Fleets interested in participating can expect reduced incremental costs on hybrids, propane, electric, and natural gas-powered vehicles, and refueling and charging infrastructure.
The Triangle Clean Cities Coalition is partnering with the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) in the Fleets for the Future project.
