Green transportation describes many types of mobility that conserve energy, increase efficiency, and use clean and renewable alternative fuels. The transition from fossil fuels-gasoline and diesel-is well underway. Washington consumers and fleets increasingly use alternative fuels-such as clean electricity, biofuels, and renewable fuels-for moving people and goods.

This is especially true for public fleets. The Washington legislature has set ambitious goals and provides a variety of grants and incentives to support green transportation at all levels of government. The WSU Energy Program maintains this Green Transportation website to provide unbiased, up-to-date education and technical assistance to support the transition of public fleets to cleaner fuels.
