Electric Mobility Task Force and Roadmap
The City of Orlando organized an Electric Mobility Taskforce composed of transportation stakeholders from government, utilities, transit authorities and others, who convened over the course of six months in 2021. Together, the Taskforce created an E-Mobility Roadmap that represents a unified vision of how mobility must and will transform in Orlando by 2030 and beyond. This Roadmap will be published in late 2021, and outlines four shared, core goals, along with specific targets and indicators to monitor progress and advance implementation.
Electric Vehicle Readiness Policy
In August 2021, City Council approved an Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness code that requires new construction projects to meet current EV charging needs through installation of charging stations, and prepare for future demand with “EV Capable” parking spaces. The intent of EV Readiness is to provide widespread access to EV charging throughout the City to prepare for rapid EV adoption, improve local air quality, and achieve the City’s sustainability and climate goals in an inclusive and accessible manner.

Electric Fleet Vehicles
The City of Orlando boasts 1,689 alternative fuel vehicles currently in its fleet and plans to grow this number to a total of 2,389 by 2030. Recent additions, such as 15 new Chevy Bolts and the 100 Electric F-150 trucks currently in order, help to contribute to this transition. These clean vehicles are saving taxpayer dollars spent on operations and maintenance and reducing the emissions released in the process.
CNG and Hydraulic Hybrid Garbage Trucks and Recycling Trucks
Today, over 90% of the City of Orlando’s refuse and recycling collection trucks have been replaced by compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. The new CNG trucks are significantly quieter on our city streets and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 12.5 thousand metric tons – the equivalent to taking 325 cars off the road - each year. And they further reduce the city’s use of more expensive diesel fuels.
