USPS going green with fuel efficient vehicles

The United States Postal Service is known to harbor one of the largest vehicle fleets on the planet, with over 220,000 vans in use. Of the fleet, currently 43,000 vehicles use alternative-fuel. Now the USPS has announced plans to replace aging vans with 900 hybrids and 1,000 alternative fuel vehicles.

The plan, put in place and paid for by the U.S. General Services Administration, is part of a larger $210 million measure to green the government’s fleet of vehicles. The USPS is also putting into place measures that will cut petroleum use by 20 percent in the next five years, and will create room for thousands more vehicles that are alternative fuel.
