LoCITY is an industry led programme that is helping the freight and fleet sector lead the way in improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions.
LoCITY works with freight and fleet operators, vehicle manufacturers, infrastructure providers, procurers and other key stakeholders to increase the availability and uptake of low emission commercial vehicles. We also offer guidance, tools, training and support, and will be launching the LoCITY Fleet Advice Programme in 2017.
LoCITY will accelerate the adoption of low emission commercial vehicles in London. This will include the demonstration of vehicle and fuelling solutions, followed by mass rollout as their real-world applicability is proven.
Improved vehicle availability – together with the introduction of the ULEZ – will strengthen the case for acquiring low emission commercial vehicles over the next few years. By joining LoCITY now, you can influence key decisions and programme outputs, including technology demonstration, infrastructure placement and the development of procurement requirements. You can also help ensure that a best-practice approach is devised and adopted.

A LoCITY Champion is collaborating in a trial of geo-fencing technology that could see real-time air quality data used to trigger hybrid vehicles into switching to pure-electric mode.
Gatwick Airport, Santander and OVO Energy have become the latest companies to pledge that they will introduce electric vehicles into their fleet, pushing the Go Ultra Low initiative beyond 100 members.
