Addresses the largest problem disaster relief organizations face when responding to natural or man made disasters.

With fuel costs at a premium, $3.00 + - per gallon average nation wide 2017 -18, getting volunteers to and from disaster zones hinders effective volunteer disaster response capabilities. What makes this problem worse during disasters is the fact that access to traditional forms of fuel are rationed where they are needed most. The Veterans Green Bus Project attacks these issues head on with a strategic plan to increase access and reduce the costs of fuel for transportation and emergency power.


  • Reduce the cost of training facility operations and fuel for transporting tools, supplies and volunteers to and from disasters by up to 90%.
