Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive

What is the Ride and Drive?

Breathe has partnered with Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) to implement the Ride and Drive program. The program is a partnership with Breathe and the Sacramento City Unified School District, Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District and the Clean Cities Coalition. Our goal is to educate local schools and teachers on the affordability and benefit of electric cars and zero-emissions vehicles.

How does Ride and Drive work?

These Ride and Drive events are designed to educate Sacramento’s teachers about the accessibility and most importantly the affordability of zero emissions vehicles. SCUSD teachers already have a baseline awareness about EV’s as their campus has charging infrastructure available on site. Nevertheless, Breathe seeks to expand their knowledge base and raise awareness about vehicles that teachers can afford.

Ride and Drive goals:

  • Educate the general public about zero emissions technology.
  • Show that electric vehicles are affordable and easy to use.
  • Give them tools to research rebates that are available in their area.
  • Remove barriers and misconceptions surrounding use of EVs
  • Use incentives to motivated more people to take the survey and drive the cars.
