Electric Vehicle Events

Our Community CarShare Events

The Our Community CarShare program provides free electric vehicle car-sharing to residents of six Sacramento Housing Authority properties. Our Community CarShare Sacramento aims to promote different forms of transportation with a low carbon footprint, and bring electric vehicles to drivers and families in lower income areas.

It is vital to connect people who are looking for alternative means of transportation with a heavy focus on community engagement and responsibility. Since the CarShare is a free, membership-based project, community members can use the cars for everyday transit throughout the Sacramento Region. For example, parents can schedule their children’s pediatrician visit, friends can carpool to local recreation destinations, and families can use the cars for weekly errand runs.

Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive Events

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, teachers and the entire community on the affordability and benefit of electric cars and zero-emissions vehicles.

These Ride and Drive events are designed to educate Sacramento about the accessibility, and more 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 all people 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.
