The following programs are available to consumers interested in exploring clean transportation technology and clean vehicle purchasing. Many of these opportunities offer benefits to lower-income consumers that live in disadvantaged communities. Clean transportation also provides many health and environmental related benefits.

Ecosystem of Shared Mobility in the San Joaquin Valley
This project includes several mobility services (below) for priority populations within five rural communities where transit is costly and limited.
MioCar is an affordable all electric carsharing service with 27 EVs and is available in 8 affordable housing complexes in rural Tulare and Kern counties.
The VAMOS Mobility app allows residents to efficiently plan trips within and between San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. The app also connects residents to MioCar reservations, EV ride-hailing (VOGO), bike routes, bus routes, and in-app payment options for transit fares.
VOGO (Volunteer Ride-hailing) offers free rides to non-driving and other residents that live in rural areas outside of public transit.
Lift Line Paratransit Dial-a-Ride Electric Vehicle Transportation Program in the Central Coast
Lift Line is the first public transportation entity to use all-electric paratransit vehicles (two 16-seat and one 14-seat electric vehicle shuttles equipped with wheelchair lifts).
The shuttles are charged at stations located at the Lift Line fleet facility and are also accessible to the public.
The service offers free rides to low-income elderly and disabled passengers in need of door-to-door transportation to medical appointments, meal sites, and other locations.
