Electric Transportation

Electric vehicles are clean, economical and quiet. In our community, gas-powered vehicles are the largest contributor to polluting greenhouse gas emissions. With more people moving to our region and circulating on our roads, electric vehicles can contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable future. In recent years, levels of air pollution in San Antonio have been measured higher than allowed by federal clean air standards. Prolonged exposure to polluted air particularly threatens the health of children, people who are active or work outdoors and those with respiratory illnesses. As the market develops around electric vehicles in San Antonio, EV-SA unifies the City's policy, planning and programming efforts around electric transportation. Check back often for new updates.
