Orange County Government, Florida

Sustainability Plan

Sustainability and Mobility

Whether we walk, bike, drive, ride, or fly, having safe, efficient, reliable avenues to reach our destinations is critical for a sustainable Orange County. Mobility is vital for maintaining economic vitality, promoting environmental stewardship, and ensuring quality of life for businesses, residents, and visitors.

Accomplishments and Efforts

  • Orange County Government earned the “Top 20 Vehicle Fleets” Award (2009).
  • Orange County converted six Toyota Prius hybrids from the fleet to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, essentially doubling the fuel efficiency of these vehicles.
  • Nearly 300 public electric vehicle charging stations have been installed under the Get Ready Central Florida initiative.
  • Orange County has made a substantial contribution to Central Florida’s first commuter rail system, SunRail. SunRail will operate along a 61-mile north/south corridor from Volusia County to Osceola County. Orange County will be served by stops in Maitland, Winter Park, Orlando, and Meadow Woods. Phase One (1) of the SunRail system will begin operating in 2014.
  • Electric vehicles are now available for rental at the Orlando International Airport.
