Beginning in 2018, we’re working to make the business case for smart, shared, and sustainable mobility services. The project, led by the City of Seattle and Atlas Public Policy, brings together the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficient Mobility Systems program and major industry stakeholders with the cities of Seattle, New York, Portland, and Denver to test different electric, shared mobility interventions.

We aim to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in shared mobility applications and to establish best practices that can be used by others around the United States.
