How will the fleet of cars used by the employees of the Bloomberg administration be brought into line with the mayor’s plan to reduce traffic congestion in midtown ?
Bloomberg’s spokesman Stu Loeser emailed me this explanation:
The Mayor committed to reducing the civilian non-emergency fleet by 10
percent in his first term, and he did. That said, a few agencies like
ACS and Building have bumped up in fleet size because we’ve moved people out of paper-pushing desk jobs and into the field.
And as PlaNYC detailed (on p 122), we’ve added 1,700 hybrids to the
City’s vehicle fleet in the past five years.
In case you were wondering.
