Create an incentives/fee program in which shared mobility services (Lyft, Uber, etc.) can increase their fleet size and operating footprint if their fleets are increasingly electrified.
Similar to the Transportation Network Companies (TNCs)' caps in other cities, Dallas can deploy a TNC fleet cap unless certain conditions are met, such as the electrification of their contractor fleet. The City will encourage the rapid electrification of ridesharing fleets by working with TNCs to deploy or expand their company vehicle leasing program by offering incentive programs to new contractors to utilize an electric vehicle.
Examples of similar initiatives are occurring in several cities including Austin - where Uber is piloting a EV Champions Initiative to encourage the adoption of more EVs. The initiative provides access to EV education and resources for drivers and in-app features built for EV drivers to locate closest charging stations. Over the long term, the City will transition to electrification mandates for ride-share fleets.
