All new vehicles that are bought to the city fleet in Stockholm should be clean

60 % clean vehicles in the city fleet by 2006

80 % clean fuels in their tanks

4 % of all vehicles sold in Stockholm should be clean

Local Incentives in Stockholm


Demand clean transport in PROCUREMENTS of ALL transport services - i.e taxi, goods distribution, waste collection


Clean taxis get customers first at Stockholm Arlanda Airport (soon also on the Central Train Station)

A clean taxi is automatically chosen when ordering from the telephone number within the City

Taxi companies carrying out services for the city need to have 100+50+50 clean taxis

When paying for taxi services for elderly and sick - clean taxis get more money per km driven
