Oceanside’s Ride g’Oside EV Shuttle Pilot Program Completion Date is December 6

 

In June 2022, the City of Oceanside launched an electric vehicle shuttle pilot program to serve Downtown Oceanside during the summer season. The program was paid for with one-time American Rescue Plan Act funds in an effort to assist local businesses, alleviate parking congestion, reduce vehicle emissions, and speed the recovery of the City’s tourism industry.

 

The pilot program expires on December 6, at which point the service will end. Future operations will be dependent on funding availability, and City staff will be working to identify grants and other funding sources to revive the program next summer.  Additionally, a seasonal shuttle program will be included for consideration at the City of Oceanside’s fiscal year 2023-2024 budget workshop in early 2023.
