As a part of the EV Shared Mobility Project, Seattle will test whether the deployment of charging infrastructure at prioritized locations would increase the use of electric vehicles (EVs) in shared mobility services. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) has developed a methodology which is detailed in their EVSE Roadmap (“Roadmap”) for prioritizing charging station deployments to serve areas where gaps in shared mobility, equity, transit access, and EV charging infrastructure have been identified.
Forth has hired creative agency, Brand Definition, to work closely with Forth to develop a two-part driver outreach initiative that will be implemented in the summer and fall of 2020.
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 study seeks to understand the impact this increase in FHV usage has had on greenhouse gas emissions in New York City.
As a part of the EV Shared Mobility Project, the City and County of Denver will capitalize on statewide momentum towards transportation electrification in Colorado and draw on their advantageous contracting and permitting position to advance public EV charging deployment.
As a part of the EV Shared Mobility project, Forth will use their expertise in raising awareness to advance electric, smart, and shared mobility services and to encourage EV adoption among ride-hail drivers working for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft.
Ride-hailing trips today result in an estimated 69 percent more climate pollution on average than the trips they displace. Fortunately, the industry can implement several strategies to address the negative impacts of ride-hailing and contribute to a low-carbon transportation future.
The launch of app-based for-hire vehicle (FHV) companies has led to increased shared mobility options, but the increase in vehicle miles traveled created by this growing sector has also presented challenges.
This memo provides charging cord guidance for on-street Level 1 (110-120V) charging in single-family and multi-family zones in Seattle. SDOT continue to explore additional, longer term EV charging solutions for single-family, multi-family, and mixed use zones.
Carsharing provides members access to a fleet of autos for short-term use throughout the day, reducing the need for one or more personal vehicles. This report reviews key terms and definitions for carsharing, common carsharing business models, and existing impact studies. The report argues that as carsharing evolves toward automation, policies that encourage transportation equity for underserved communities and vehicle sharing (both pooled and sequential) should be explored.
