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.
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.
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.
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.
