Transportation electrification toolkit for cities published by DOT

Dive Brief:
The U.S. Department of Transportation published the “Urban Electric Mobility Toolkit” on its website Wednesday to help larger communities take advantage of federal funding for electric vehicle charging stations and other forms of electric transportation.

Cities, states, metropolitan planning organizations, transportation providers, nonprofits, businesses and property owners and developers can also use the resource to find partners for and plan electric vehicle charging projects.

“Building an affordable and accessible public charging network will help make electric forms of transportation more convenient for the 71% of Americans who live in communities with a population over 50,000,” the Department of Energy said in a press release.
