MTC Awards $6 Million for Electric Vehicle Taxi Implementation

A world class electric vehicle network for the region, supported by the Bay Area Council, moved one step closer to fruition yesterday. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) has awarded $14 million in grants for electric vehicle projects in the Bay Area.  The grants, to be matched by government and private funds, include $6 million for an Electric Vehicle Taxi Corridor, supported by the Bay Area Council, which will fund 61 electric taxis and four battery switch stations in the Bay Area. This is a major milestone towards cementing the Bay Area’s leadership in the electric vehicle arena.
