Vehicle and Equipment Fleet

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) vehicle and equipment fleet includes 930 light-duty vehicles and 1,600 medium- and heavy-duty pieces of equipment and commercial class vehicles.

The maintenance compliance, analysis and distribution of these fleet assets is administrated by the Fleet Management Division. The division ensures that the fleet meets MDOT SHA’s operational needs in functionality, as well as condition. 

Ensuring the fleet is of adequate size and type helps MDOT SHA provide our customers with well-maintained roadways by increasing our effectiveness while reducing our response times. 

Maintaining our fleet at peak operating condition achieves our customer service goals and benefits all Marylanders by reducing the environmental impact from vehicle and equipment emissions. 

The MDOT SHA fleet meets or exceeds all model year Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for vehicle and equipment emissions. In the last 15 years we have conformed to California Air Resource Board (CARB) emissions standards, which significantly exceed the EPA standards. 

MDOT SHA is consistently leveraging new technology to make our fleet cleaner, more efficient and highly effective. Our goal of providing a world class highway system while reducing the size of our environmental impact footprint is a responsibility that we take very seriously.
