Metro Rideshare Operations furthers innovative public transportation with 100% electric, zero-emission vehicles (EVs) known as metropools. Twenty new five-passenger Nissan LEAFs are added to the Commuter Van Program. To support the EV effort, the Department of Transportation is installing 54 public-access electric charging stations in buildings and at transportation hubs such as Park & Ride lots and ferry terminals. Many private employers have also installed charging stations. Watch this video.
