TxETRA (Texas Electric Transportation Resources Alliance), a growing statewide organization, would facilitate awarding 8 candidates with used electric vehicles for use in a rideshare program such as RideAustin. The vehicles are intended for use by the candidate in producing income through the rideshare program, as well as personal use. Participants will have the option to commit a percentage of income gained to paying down on the permanent purchase of the vehicle. Participants will be required to contribute a percentage of their drive time to transport an elderly or disabled member of their community to health and other health-related services, as outlined by the Ford Mobility Study. In partnership with the City of Austin and the preferred rideshare partner, TxETRA will design the business model to grow over time, adding more candidates and distributing more vehicles.
