2017 City of Portland Electric Vehicle Strategy

2017 City of Portland Electric Vehicle Strategy

This Electric Vehicle Strategy focuses on electrification of the public transit system, shared vehicles and the private automobiles that remain in use, which is one of many strategies the City is taking to reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector. This strategy also seeks to maximize the benefits of air quality and affordability for low-income residents and parts of Portland that are the most dependent on private vehicles.

Key findings

Portland seeks to replace 10,000 gas-powered vehicles with electric ones by 2020.

The City seeks to support TriMet's switch to electric vehicles and will grow its' own fleets of electric vehicles.

The City is working to encourage the increased use of shared vehicles in Portland, programs such as ReachNow and Car2Go.
