Vehicles

 

All cars are expensive in Fortunata. Only electric powered cars are able to be registered privately.

The government generally discourages their usage for all but retirees and the disabled. Taxes are charged on all privately purchased or imported electric vehicles.

There is a free (electric) bus service, and ex-government electric vehicles are given to the disabled or retirees as part of their retirement package.

Some commercial and Industrial vehicles are powered by natural gas, but very few use diesel or petrol. The are no petrol stations on the island apart from at the waterfront, although stocks are also held by the government for special vehicles.

Currently most watercraft are powered by petrol  or diesel, but there are competitions to come up with alternative energy sources for them also.
