As a part of the EV Shared Mobility Project, the City of New York seeks to deployment of charging infrastructure to accelerate the electrification of the City’s expanding ride-hail industry. Multiple departments across the City including the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, the New York City Department of Transportation, and the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission are collaborating to realize project goals.
The EV Shared Mobility Playbook summarizes the findings from the project interventions, compares and analyzes the cities’ results, and identifies factors that affect the success of shared mobility electrification programs. The Playbook is be a resource for other cities or organizations that are considering pilot programs for electrification in shared mobility spaces.
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.
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.
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.
Seattle’s Dynamic Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Siting Model is a GIS-based tool to guide EVSE deployments that align with the City’s priorities and the EV Shared Mobility Project’s objectives. The model includes a variety of different data sources that are nearly all publicly available.
This report reviews lessons learned from relevant studies and initial outreach activities and provide recommendations for future engagement and action to electrify ride-hailing services in the Seattle area.
