To enable mass electric vehicle (EV) adoption, public charging access must be equitably distributed to support all drivers. For drivers who lack access to dedicated off-street parking or are unable to charge where they park, making the switch to an EV is not yet a logical choice.
Efforts to reduce transportation emissions through electrification can accelerate their impact by focusing on intensively used vehicles. Vehicles driven on ride-hailing platforms such as Uber and Lyft are intensively used, and their distinct charging patterns can support the development of...
