Achieving cleaner air and better fuel efficiency through
alternative fuel transportation at San Diego International Airport
The Airport Vehicle Rebate Program ( AVRP) is part of statewide efforts to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions by increasing the use of cleaner transportation. The program provides cash incentives to vehicle operators and fleet managers providing San Diego airport ground transportation services.
AVRP incentives help offset the cost of purchasing lower emission, alternative fuel taxis, shuttles and door-to-door vans. The program also provides free technical training and support about vehicle options for transportation providers.
The California Center for Sustainable Energy ( CCSE) is administering the AVRP through a $750,000 fund made possible by a grant from the Reformulated Gasoline Settlement Fund. Created as a result of an antitrust class action, the purpose of the fund is to achieve clean air and fuel efficiency benefits for California consumers.
CCSE will implement the rebate program in coordination with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, the San Diego Association of Governments and San Diego Miramar College’s Advanced Transportation Technology & Energy Center.
Timing: Rebates applications are available on-line.
