This will include the installation of bollard-style electric vehicle charging stations near parking stalls. There will be line (conduit) extensions from common area panel to the charging stations. Software at charging stations and/or at panel to also be installed. Additionally, this project will expand the existing transit trip planning capabilities in the Vamos MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service) smartphone application. Lastly, the project will also provide discounts and/or funds through the Vamos MaaS to community members who qualify as transport-disadvantaged. The workforce development portion of this project will create an apprenticeship programs in e-shared mobility operations in the City of Stockton. The project will provide 10-20 full-time jobs and training to support the maintenance of the electric vehicle and e-bike infrastructure. The purpose of this project is to increase travel reliability and options for the City’s residents, with an emphasis on the City’s disadvantaged communities. The e-carsharing program will provide residents with a new way to travel to destinations that are not feasible to access by existing transit. The e-bikes will improve first-and-last-mile access to transit and provide an alternative travel mode to supplement infrequent transit service. The expansion of MaaS will provide residents with an easy and accessible way to purchase tickets and trip planning. The planning process will include ongoing and effective community outreach to promote both engagement and education of the projects. Beneficiaries include the public and residents of San Joaquin County at large, with a specific emphasis on residents that reside in a disadvantaged community or are transport-disadvantaged.
