LA puts sustainability centre stage

(CALIFORNIA)

An electric car sharing scheme has been launched in Los Angeles to help tackle emission levels and provide better transport options for lower income communities.

The multi-million dollar BlueLA Electric Car Sharing pilot project is part of the California Climate Investments initiative that seeks to cut greenhouse gas emissions and provide better lives for people in disadvantaged areas.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti said: “We have to put sustainability at the center of everything we do in Los Angeles — and putting more drivers in electric vehicles is a good way to clean our air. The BlueLA EV car share program puts California’s cap-and-trade dollars to work to not only help meet the Paris Climate Agreement goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and advance the EV goals in my Sustainable City pLAn, it brings new transportation options to neighborhoods that need them.”
