The City and County of San Francisco is taking bids for approximately 21.1 million gallons of renewable diesel for the three-year period starting this November 1.

Most of the fuel, some 15 million gallons, will be for Muni/San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency buses, with lesser amounts for S.F. Fire Department and other city vehicles, and for operations outside the city limits.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee pledged this last summer to fuel all of the city’s diesel vehicle with renewable diesel by year-end (F&F, July 22).

Bids under Solicitation CP 70884 are due on October 16.

Even San Francisco's fire trucks are to operate on reneable diesel.
