Cincinnati plans transition to electric vehicles for city fleet

The City of Cincinnati “plans to add 20 electric vehicles [EV] and 162 charging stations by the end of 2020” as part of a plan to eventually “transition the city’s fleet to an all EV fleet,” the Cincinnati Business Courier reports. Carla Walker, the city’s climate advisor, “said the city has allocated $96,000 in its budget to buy the 20 additional vehicles,” according to the article. Bloomberg Philanthropies chose Cincinnati to be part of the American Cities Climate Challenge, and will support the city’s efforts “to tackle climate change and support a sustainable future.” Walker “wants to educate 10,000 people on the advantages of electric vehicles” over the next year by hosting Ride and Drive events, among others.
