Abu Al-Samen highlighted that the operational costs of government vehicles, whether for fuel or maintenance, pose a significant burden on the Jordanian government's budget, especially for vehicles with engine capacities exceeding 2000 cc, Ammon News reported.

He explained that the Ministry of Transport, in cooperation with relevant government entities, established the foundation for this process in 2022, which includes the purchase of energy-efficient vehicles to replace the current ones.

Hanandeh stated that the mechanism for replacing government vehicles will be part of an operational plan that involves the use of smart applications to manage the replaced government fleet efficiently.
