CART, the City of Norman public transit system, has an idle reduction policy for all fleet vehicles. If a CART vehicle will be out of service or offline for 15 minutes or more, the engine should be shut down. If the vehicle is occupied by a driver during an idle time or out-of-service time and the weather is extreme, hot or cold, the vehicle can remain at idle. However, if the weather is tolerable, the driver should shut the engine down.
