"We were so incredibly honored to be selected this year to host the Silver Anniversary National Clean Cities Network Peer Exchange.
Utah magnificent scenery and our welcoming people went home in the hearts and minds of the Clean Cities family. "

Tammie Bostick,Executive Director, UCC

Clean Cities from across the nation toured Park City, University of Utah, Packsize, Ace Recycling & Refuse and Wasatch Resource Recovery. Each project highlighted was considered best practice smart mobility and Green Fleet savvy. The innovative work done at all of the sites impressed the entire group and inspired new partnerships and project across 50 states.
The response was overwhelmingly positive. The public transportation downtown and to the airport was hailed as excellent. The autonomous shuttle demonstrated by UDOT and UTA at the University of Utah was an added, futuristic peek in to the A.C.E.S model- Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared.

Thank you UTA for the State-of-Art Transportation!

" We couldn't be happier with the week-long event and the opportunity to "show and tell" Utah's amazing advanced fuel projects and especially introduce our guests to the people of Utah who commit to clean fuels, clean strategies and clean air".
