Good2Go Brings Equitable, All-Electric Carsharing to Roxbury

A new nonprofit carsharing business recently launched in Roxbury with the goal of offering a lower-cost, all-electric carsharing service for lower-income households.

Good2Go started offering short-term rentals of electric cars from three charging stations in Roxbury and Jamaica Plain last month.

The all-electric fleet isn’t the only thing that distinguishes the new business from other carsharing competitors: Good2Go also offers a tiered pricing structure in which qualified low-income members pay only half of the service’s normal rate, which is $10 per hour…

Randall’s company has also helped similar carsharing businesses get started in other parts of the country, like Miocar, which parks its cars at affordable housing complexes among several rural farming communities in California’s Central Valley, and BlueLA, another service with income-tiered pricing, in Los Angeles.

Randall says that Good2Go is operating as a pilot for now, and is looking for a local nonprofit that can steward the project in the long term.
