The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), in close collaboration with other City and external partners, developed this Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Roadmap for Shared Mobility (“EVSE Roadmap”) to support the transition to electrically-powered shared mobility services such as car share and ridehail services. This EVSE Roadmap outlines a strategy for Seattle to test an innovative method to increase EV adoption in shared mobility services. It is part of a broader multi-regional project supported by the Department of Energy (DOE)’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy entitled, “Making the Business Case for Smart, Shared, and Sustainable Mobility Services”. From October 2018 – September 2021, SDOT and its City and regional project partners will use the EVSE Roadmap to guide EVSE deployment efforts to support the electrification of shared mobility and evaluate and adjust the region’s strategic deployment plan. The implementation plan described here is a partnership supported by grant funding and cost share, and not an internal SDOT program. SDOT, as the lead grant recipient, serves as the regional project manager and project partners are responsible for the programmatic implementation of their responsibilities outlined in Section 4.1 in alignment with the guidance provided in this EVSE Roadmap.
