Electric Mobility in San Francisco
The transportation sector's reliance on fossil fuels makes the sector the city’s largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and criteria air pollutants. Along with mode shift away from single occupancy vehicles towards transit, walking and bicycling, strategic electrification of the transportation sector has the potential to reduce harmful emissions and air pollution. Achievement of these reductions depends, in part, on the electrification of private vehicles by establishing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure network that is responsive to current and future demands, ensures consistency with key policies such as Transit First and public health and safety policies while providing equitable access across the city.
The vision for electric mobility projects is simple— help to advance San Francisco’s vision of excellent transportation choices and mission to connect San Francisco through a safe, equitable, and sustainable transportation system. Ideally, electric mobility projects will include collaboration opportunities to support a diversity of mobility options— particularly those that do not induce or generate new vehicle miles, prioritize equitable access, complement sustainable modes of travel, integrate with facilities uses and demands, and enhance public safety and security.
Electric Mobility and Municipal Properties
City-owned and city-managed off-street parking facilities are well-suited to support the expansion of electric mobility across San Francisco.
