    Clean Air and Climate Relevance

    • The Sac Metro Air District, as a partner with the state of California, is excited to add this mobility program to the long list of other innovations emerging in the region.
    • Transportation emissions, congestion, and a growing trend of single-occupant vehicle use are increasing greenhouse gas emissions and making it more challenging to meet clean air and climate change goals.
    • With programs like Clean Cars 4 All, we can imagine a future less dependent on combustion vehicles for our transportation needs.
    • This program is an example of the transformation of transportation taking place locally and across many regions in the state, the nation, and the world.
    • We in Sacramento want to be the game changers for future mobility.

    Program Funding

    • ​$5 million from California Climate Investments administered by the California Air Resources Board. The funding is expected to fund 300 to 500 vehicles and about 100 alternative transportation options.
