Together, we can make a difference by encouraging cleaner, more efficient transportation
Implement an Incentive Program
One easy, low cost way to encourage the purchase of more efficient cars and trucks is to provide an incentive to people who buy SmartWay vehicles. Take a look at a few incentive programs at work around the country:
- Universities and Non-Profits –
- Massachusetts Institute of Technologyprovides parking permit discounts to students and employees who drive SmartWay Elite vehicles.
- University of Montanahas a “Go Green” permit program that offers parking discounts to students driving SmartWay Elite vehicles.
- The Cleveland Clinic provides financial and parking incentives to employees who purchase SmartWay vehicles for their personal use.
- Municipalities – The City of Miami Beach provides discounts on parking permits for residents and at city garages for those who commute into the city if you drive a SmartWay vehicle.
- Private Sector – Many companies have “greened their fleet” by requiring that the majority of company cars be SmartWay certified.
- Lenders – Many credit unions like Tinker Federal Credit Union offer a "Green Auto Loan" discount if you choose to buy a SmartWay vehicle.
