Improving Fleet Efficiency

YVR has a comprehensive Fleet Management Plan that we update annually to reflect priorities and purchasing decisions. In 2016, we reduced our fleet size by retiring 31 vehicles while commissioning 22 new vehicles. YVR now has six electric fleet vehicles.

Fuel Consumption

YVR has used a five per cent blend of biodiesel for fleet vehicles since 2007. In 2016, we introduced six new hybrid diesel buses to our fleet, which saved over 70,000 litres of diesel—leading to a 34 per cent decrease in diesel consumption, or 175 tonnes of CO2e, compared to 2015. In total, we purchased 161,177 litres of gasoline and 254,999 litres of biodiesel, a decrease of three per cent and 24 per cent, respectively, over 2015.
