City vehicles are an essential component of the delivery of City programs and the provision of public services. City vehicles are also the second highest source of the City’s corporate emissions at 40 per cent, with buildings at 46 per cent.

The Sustainable City of Toronto Fleets plan is transitioning City Fleets to sustainable, resilient, net-zero operations by 2040, including 45 per cent emissions reduction by 2025, and 65 per cent by 2030. The City also aims to transition 20 per cent of its Fleet to Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) by 2025, and 50 per cent by 2030.

The scope of the Plan includes more than 10,000 vehicles and equipment managed and operated by Fleet Services Division, Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), Toronto Police Service, Toronto Fire Services, Toronto Paramedic Services, Toronto Community Housing, Exhibition Place, Toronto Zoo, Toronto Parking Authority, and Toronto Public Library.

To date, we have eliminated approximately 190 metric kilotons of greenhouse gas emissions, a 42 per cent reduction from 1990 levels.
