Chattanooga Goes Green with Zero-Emission Car Sharing
“From being one of the first cities in the nation to offer free rides on electric buses, to starting one of the first electric vehicle ride-share programs, the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) is paving the way for innovative and cleaner transportation. . . . Green Commuter, a Los Angeles headquartered benefit corporation, was selected by CARTA to launch the state’s first all-electric public car-share system with the initial deployment of 20 Nissan LEAFs in Chattanooga, taking advantage of CARTA’s public charging network. The Nissan LEAFs serve the central business district, key employment and residential centers, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and Southern Adventist University.
