Making the Business Case for Smart, Shared, and Sustainable Mobility Services

The City of Seattle is working with Atlas Public Policy to accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in shared-mobility applications and subsequently establish best practices for use in all U.S. metro regions. The project will identify and test techniques for effective PEV deployment and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installation for use by riding hail drivers and shared mobility companies. This project is partnering with four major US pilot markets: Denver, New York, Portland, and Seattle.

As of 2018, the City of Seattle and its project partners have created a strategic deployment plan and developed a geographic information system (GIS)-based prioritization model for EVSE site selection. They are now creating an EVSE siting roadmap and selecting phase 1 sites for mobility hub electrification. The project will culminate in an analysis of market-viable techniques for PEV adoption based on the findings of each city’s program in an EV Shared Mobility Playbook.
