Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway worked with the Land of Sky Clean Vehicles coalition to shift to domestic fuel use in the park. In 2012, Blue Ridge acquired four hybrids and four propane pickup trucks to replace less-efficient vehicles dating back to model year 1989. The vehicles are helping raise awareness of sustainability among the park's visitors. The park also installed a propane refueling station.
