Bard's Fleet

In 2009, fleet emissions were estimated to be 510 tCO2e, or about 3.5 percent of Bard’s total emissions for the year. Bard received a grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for a Prius, two electric vans, and a hybrid diesel electric 32-passenger shuttle. Visit the Climate Action Plan to learn more about commuting patterns and vehicle types on campus.
