Clean Car Sharing & Mobility Program

The objective of this project is to reduce congestion, increase ridership and connectivity to public transit, and improve air quality in American cities by incorporating clean fuel vehicles into urban car sharing programs, and combining clean car sharing programs with both mass transit and emerging Bus Rapid Transit systems. This project supports the deployment of innovative clean mobility services that provide an alternative to private automobile travel, increase ridership and connectivity to public transit, and reduce the environmental impacts of transportation. WestStart and Washington State partnered to establish Clean Mobility Centers (CMC) in American cities. These centers provide commuters and travelers with clean mobility alternatives, such as a Bikestation--which enables commuters to switch from a car-commute to a bike-commute. Under this Clean Car Sharing & Mobility Program, WestStart will undertake activities to determine (1) how clean fuel vehicles can be integrated into existing urban car sharing programs in American cities, and (2) how to combine clean car sharing programs with both mass transit programs and emerging bus rapid transit systems.
