National Parks Initiative
Clean Cities partners with the National Park Service (NPS) through the Clean Cities National Parks Initiative to support transportation projects that educate park visitors on the benefits of cutting petroleum use and vehicle emissions. Since 2010, Clean Cities and NPS have partnered on 35 projects to deploy alternative fuel and fuel-efficient vehicles to the road, reduce vehicle idling, and improve vehicle efficiency. These actions support and coincide with NPS's efforts to address climate change impacts.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, which partnered with Alamo Area Clean Cities, is taking steps to reduce pollution in San Antonio. The park is purchasing two propane pickup trucks to replace two outdated gasoline-powered pickup trucks. The park is also installing two EV chargers and a propane vehicle refueling site.
