Program Areas
Quick Reference


The Transportation Program Area addresses vehicle fleet management which includes optimizing vehicle maintenance operations, biofuels, pollution prevention tools and techniques including disposal of used oil, and transportation of freight, cargo and household goods. Additionally included are links to software and databases that can model engine effectiveness and demonstrate appropriate pollution prevention techniques.

The Implementing Instructions for EO 13834, issued April 2019, provides instructions to Federal agencies regarding the implementation of EO 13834 including agency planning, reporting requirements, and accountability. Note that in these implementing instructions, the terms "must" and "shall" convey statutory or regulatory requirements; "instruct" conveys directions to implement EO 13834; "should" or "may" convey recommended best practices for efficient and effective implementation (Section 1, para B.)

In relation to Transportation, the implementing instructions define the applicable Progress Metrics as follow.


  • Reduction in petroleum consumption; and
  • Increase in alternative fuel consumption.

    Performance Measures

  • Achieved 20 percent petroleum reduction relative to FY 2005 and demonstrate annual progress each fiscal year.

    Progress Milestone

  • Agencies will identify targets for petroleum reduction and alternative fuel increase for the next fiscal year in annual Sustainability Plans.

As part of a comprehensive strategy to comply with statutory mandates while improving overall fleet efficiency, reducing costs, and meeting mission requirements, agencies should identify and implement strategies to:

  • 1. Right-size the fleet;
  • 2. Reduce vehicle miles traveled;
  • 3. Replace inefficient vehicles with more fuel efficient vehicles; and
  • 4. Align deployment of alternative fuel vehicles with fueling infrastructure.

Federal fleet management includes meeting the following acquisition goals where applicable:

  • At least 75 percent of light-duty vehicle (LDV) acquisitions by covered Federal fleets located in metropolitan statistical areas (as defined by 42 U.S.C. § 13212)must be alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs,) which include flex-fuel, electric, plug-in hybrid electric, compressed natural gas, low GHG-emitting, liquefied petroleum gas, liquefied natural gas, and fuel- cell vehicles.
  • All light-duty vehicles and medium-duty passenger vehicles acquired by agencies must be low GHG-emitting vehicles unless they qualify for a functional needs exemption or the agency reduces emissions through alternative measures (42 U.S.C. § 13212(f)).

Federal fleet management also includes meeting the following fuel management/reduction goals:

  • Agencies must reduce annual petroleum consumption by 20 percent by 2015 and increase alternative fuel use by 10 percent annually, relative to a FY 2005 baseline (42 U.S.C. § 6374e(a)(2)).
  • Federal fleet dual-fueled AFVs must use alternative fuel only, unless granted a waiver by DOE (referred to as "Section 701" waiver under EPAct 2005) (42 U.S.C. § 6374(a)(3)(E)).
  • Every Federal fueling center without renewable fuel availability must install a renewable fuel pump (42 U.S.C. § 17053).

Agencies are required to conduct a study of all their fleet vehicles (vehicle allocation methodology or VAM) at least once every five years to identify opportunities to eliminate unnecessary vehicles, right-size vehicles for their mission, and deploy AFVs effectively (see GSA FMR Bulletin B-43). Agencies are encouraged to conduct a VAM study more frequently if the agency's mission or resource requirements change.

Agencies should ensure that their law enforcement (LE) and emergency vehicles are the smallest, most fuel efficient, and least GHG-emitting vehicles necessary to execute mission requirements (GSA FMR Bulletin B-33).

In order to measure performance on efficient fleet management, agency progress will be assessed based on the statutory requirement for petroleum reduction. Data points to be tracked to inform effective management currently include percentage increase in alternative fuel, alternative fuel as a percentage of total covered fuel consumption, compliance with statutory minimums for alternative fuel vehicle acquisitions, and annual progress on fleet-wide miles per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) of petroleum fuels. Data for these indicators are obtained through the Federal Automotive Statistical Tool (FAST)) and require no additional reporting. Note that the data entered into FAST includes the percentage of diesel used in B20 or any renewable diesel blends.

Agencies are also required to use a fleet management information system (FMIS) which provides agencies the ability to identify, collect, and analyze motor vehicle data and capture all costs incurred during the motor vehicle life cycle. FMIS also facilitates asset-level data (ALD) management and serves as a critical tool for controlling costs, establishing utilization criteria, and ensuring effective fleet resource management. Agencies should ensure all ALD collected through the agency FMIS is accurate and complete. Agencies that do not have an existing, compliant agency FMIS or motor pool management tool should use GSA's Federal Fleet Management System (FedFMS).

To the maximum extent practicable, and where life cycle cost-effective, agencies should adopt technology-based hardware tools to collect and record vehicle operational data. Agencies should use telematics to promote efficient driving, automate reporting to FMIS, assist in mandatory FAST reporting, and factor geolocation data into their vehicle allocation methodology (VAM) processes. Adoption of telematics will increase savings by providing information to reduce fleet size, fuel use, misuse of vehicles, and unnecessary or insufficient maintenance.

Agencies will annually report vehicle and fleet data through FAST [and will identify yearly targets for progress on petroleum reduction and alternative fuel use in their Sustainability Plans, in accordance with annual instructions. To assist with effective program management, data points tracked as indicators currently include:

  • Alternative fuel increase: 10 percent annual increase from FY 2005 baseline.
  • Alternative fuel as a percentage of total covered fuel consumption.
  • AFV acquisitions as a percentage of vehicle acquisitions.
  • Fleet-wide miles per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) of petroleum fuels.

  • Regulations, Guidance, and Policy
    This act was signed into law on August 8, 2005. the Act contains a multitude of provisions covering energy production, distribution, storage, efficiency, conservation, and research. The Act requires efficiency standards for certain large appliances and extends Daylight Saving Time to reduce consumption. It provides funding to improve efficiency in low-income housing and expands the Energy Star program. It also requires the federal government to increase the efficiency of its buildings and vehicles and provides tax credits for certain energy efficient purchases or improvements. Other topic of note are: renewable energy, expanding of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, fuel production access in federal lands, the banning of drilling in the Great Lakes, electricity reliability, hydrogen vehicles, vehicle efficiency and alternative fuels, ethanol and motor fuels.
    The 1990 Pollution Prevention Act focused industry, government, and public attention on reducing the amount of pollution through cost-effective changes in production, operation, and raw materials use. Opportunities for source reduction are often not realized because of existing regulations, and the industrial resources required for compliance, focus on treatment and disposal. Source reduction is fundamentally different and more desirable than waste management or pollution control.
    Signed on August 10, 2005 SAFETEA-LU authorizes the Federal surface transportation programs for highways, highway safety, and transit for the 5-yr period 2005-2009.

    Presentation given during the 2010 DOI Conference on the Environment in April 2010.
    Developed in 2010 by TRIPTAC, the goals of this module are to 1) introduce participants to the critical transportation-related concerns and considerations faced by federal land management agencies (FLMAs) and gateway communities, 2) describe how these concerns affect visitors' experiences and the unit resources, 3) outline the different alternative transportation systems options available to planners, 4) provide participants with a framework for evaluating alternative transportation systems, and 5) prepare participants for the rest of the module series. This module is available in PDF or streaming format and is offered by the Federal Lands Transportation Institute.
