The newly created Shared Use Mobility Center’s vision is to extend the benefits of shared use mobility services, including bikesharing, carsharing, ridesharing, and ridesourcing. With this proposed grant support, the Center will provide technical support for planning and implementing electric car sharing programs in low-income communities in Los Angeles and electric van pool programs in agricultural communities in the Central Valley of California. These programs are possible given resources from the State’s Cap and Trade system through the Charge Ahead Initiative to accelerate the transition to clean mobility.

Grants to this Grantee
for accelerating electrification through shared mobility
The Shared-Use Mobility Center works to reduce the number of single-occupancy cars on the road, and promote shared, affordable, and clean transportation solutions in U.S. cities. This grant will enable the center to develop a strategy to accelerate the electrification of transport in the United States through shared mobility. Shared mobility fleets, with higher utilization rates and aggregate purchasing agreements, can contribute to scaling up the electric vehicle market. The Center will work with private sector operators, as well as regional entities, to develop an aligned and ambitious strategy.
