Trenton to Launch Electric Vehicle Solution to Improve Transportation Access and Public Health

  • Date: 02/17/2021

The City of Trenton, in collaboration with Isles Inc., a nonprofit community development and environmental organization that works to foster self-reliance and healthy, sustainable communities, will soon launch a multi-service electric vehicle program to improve resident mobility and increase access to jobs, healthcare, and new opportunities while addressing public health challenges imposed by greenhouse gases and air pollution.

The program seeks to provide transportation services in three phases:

  • An electric carsharing service that will allow residents to rent vehicles for designated periods.
  • An electric ridesharing service that will hire local drivers, support local businesses and improve residents’ mobility and access to essential resources.
  • An electric shuttle service that will connect residents to jobs and create a network of community organizations to expand social, health, and financial services.
