City Launches Electric Vehicle Sharing Program
Los Angeles recently launched the BlueLA Electric Car Sharing Program, the nation’s largest electric vehicle sharing program for disadvantaged communities.
The pilot program will serve portions of Westlake, Pico Union, Koreatown, Echo Park, and Downtown Los Angeles.
The program is funded in part by a $1.7 million grant through California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide program that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health -particularly in disadvantaged communities.
Ultimately, the service will bring 100 electric cars and 200 chargers to self-service stations across the city, available to anyone 18 years or older with a valid driver’s license.
