FORT WORTH, Texas -- DFW Clean Cities recently recognized the city of Fort Worth and 18 other partners for their work to embrace alternatives to traditional gasoline as part of the third annual Fleet Recognition Awards. Fort Worth received a bronze award.

Participating governing bodies were required to provide information on their progress via the DFW Clean Cities Annual Report. Entities were scored on a 100-point scale based on their work to embrace clean vehicle technologies, partner with the North Central Texas Council of Governments and DFW Clean Cities, and educate their drivers.

The winners contributed to the region-wide reduction of more than 25 million gallons of gasoline annually, which represented the largest savings on record. Alternative fuel vehicles accounted for the vast majority of gallons and greenhouse gas emissions reduced, according to the report.

Other contributors were electric and plug-in vehicles, improvements to fuel economy, hybrids, idle reduction, off-road vehicles and a reduction in vehicle miles traveled.
