2017 City of Portland Electric Vehicle Strategy

The City of Portland’s approach to personal mobility prioritizes safety, health, affordability and environmental quality. City of Portland staff are working to encourage people movement instead of car movement by creating a healthy, connected city that enables safe and convenient walking, biking and transit use.
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 the 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.
