The city of Tucson’s Fleet Services Division has been named to The 100 Best Fleets in the Americas list, which is focused on the public sector fleet industry.
This year is the fifth consecutive year that Tucson’s Fleet Services has been placed on the list. The 16-year-old initiative serves to recognize and inspire high performance in fleets.
The city ranked at No. 52, up from No. 83 last year. Tucson was ranked on criteria, including accountability, utilization of technology and information, collaboration and creativity. The jurisdiction earned points for trust and “celebration,” positive acknowledgment of its achievements and staff development; efficiency, competitive pricing and judicious use of available resources also served as benchmarks of the service's success.
The Fleet Services Division in Tucson oversees a fleet of vehicles and equipment used for public services, totaling 2,550. Responsibilities include preventive maintenance and repair; overseeing fuel operations; managing purchase and disposal of units, and operating a city motor pool, government officials stated on the city’s website.
