Electric vehicles

The federal Green Postal Service Fleet Act would stop a plan to keep the Postal Service’s massive delivery fleet running on fossil fuels — and instead require that 75% of new vehicles be electric.

It’s a no-brainer for our air, our health and our climate. Fossil fuel-powered transportation is America’s No. 1 source of greenhouse gas emissions; meanwhile, the Postal Service’s own Inspector General found that nearly all mail routes could already be served by clean electric vehicles and that EVs are much cheaper in the long run.

Will you join us in urging Congress to pass this crucial legislation?
