A Comprehensive Mobility Program for $3 Per Hour

A program supported by money resulting from air quality litigation between the City of Richmond and Chevron is being used to support a low-cost car-share program for residents of the San Francisco Bay Area town.

Miles ZX40 EVs are available via EasyGo Richmond for as little as $3 per hour.

EasyGo Richmond is a comprehensive mobility program for mostly minority residents. It introduces 100% battery electric vehicles for just $3 per hour to a new demographic – lower income (and some middle income) residents of a neighborhood housing development, where solar panels provide electricity for the cars.

EasyGo Richmond has started with six ZX40 neighborhood EVs from Southern California’s Miles Electric EVs. The program is run by San Francisco-based Transmetro, Inc. Transmetro founder Faiz Khan formerly worked with the San Francisco city fleet.
