BlueLA is a revolutionary 100% electric vehicle (EV) car sharing service coming to LA as part of the City of Los Angeles’ mobility strategy. The BlueLA service will be available to anyone over 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license. Members will have access to a network of shared electric vehicles 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, at self-service locations in their neighborhood.
BlueLA stations will be on-street, consisting of one self-service kiosk and 5 parking spots each with an electric charger, where users will collect and drop off vehicles. BlueLA is point to point, which means there’s no need to return the car to your starting point. You pay for what you use - nothing more.
In 2015, The City of Los Angeles was awarded a grant from the California Air Resources Board Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to pilot electric vehicle car sharing in low-income communities of Los Angeles. BlueLA Carsharing was selected to operate the service and is now working with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and Shared Use Mobility Center (SUMC) to deliver a system of 100 electric vehicles and 200 chargers to central Los Angeles in 2017. Project outreach efforts are supported by a committee of local community organizations, including SALEF, TRUST South LA, and KIWA.
BlueLA Carsharing is a subsidiary of the Bolloré Group of France which has launched the world’s largest and most successful car sharing service, Autolib’ in Paris, and the very first EV car sharing service of its kind in the US, BlueIndy
