NY & Clean Transportation

Clean transportation has become a priority in NY. Several programs encourage clean transportation:

  • Evolve NY is a $250 million electric vehicle expansion program that will help accelerate NY’s goal to launch 10,000 electronic vehicle charging stations by 2021.
  • The Drive Clean Rebate Program gives NY residents a rebate of approximately $2,000 for the purchase of a new hybrid or electric car from participating car dealers
  • Other incentives include discounts on toll charges for drivers who carpool using NY EZ Pass, also known as the Carpool or Green Pass Plan
  • As an alternative to driving, consumers are encouraged to bike to work. In NYC, Citibike has 12,000 rental bikes available in 60 neighborhoods.

By committing to change, clean transportation can become a reality.
