Using Translation

The County of San Mateo has added a translation feature developed by Google Translate to assist web visitors in understanding information on this website in a variety of foreign languages. Please be aware that Google Translate, a free third party service which the County does not control, provides automated computer translations that may not give you an exact translation. The County cannot guarantee the accuracy of translations through Google Translate so translations should not be considered exact and only used as a rough guide. Anyone relying on information obtained from Google Translate does so at his or her own risk. The County disclaims and will not accept any liability for damages or losses of any kind caused by the use of the Google Translate feature.

Green Municipal Fleet Toolkit

For San Mateo County jurisdictions interested in upgrading their fleet of vehicles, the Sustainability Department has partnered with Peninsula Clean Energy to offer a comprehensive program to assist with:

  • Identifying opportunities for fleet vehicle transitions;
  • Installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations;
  • Purchasing various types of EVs including passenger vehicles, patrol vehicles, trucks, and motorcycles;
  • Leveraging policies, processes and best practices from jurisdictions leading the way;
  • Implementing a suite of sustainable fleet practices including right sizing, fleet management, bicycles, and carpooling/sharing;
  • Additional requests that your staff has to meet your fleet, budget and climate action goals.

The Green Municipal Fleet Toolkit is flexible and caters to your jurisdiction’s specific needs. It’s designed to address the diverse interests, vehicle use types, and varying levels of infrastructure that can make going electric and greening a fleet challenging. This program is not a rebate or cash incentive program, but offers Sustainability Department staff time, expertise and customized support.
