Electric car-sharing program launches in Chattanooga

Through the car-sharing program, drivers can rent a Leaf, which has a range of about 90 to 100 miles on a charge, for $9 an hour or $45 a day. Applicants need to go online to Green Commuter's website and prove they have a clean driving record and pay a $25 application fee and $50 annual membership fee (which for a limited time will be provided as a $50 driving credit.)
Only about a dozen cars are expected to be operational tomorrow at a limited number of stations. Eventually, 20 Leafs will be available for rental by such users as downtown dwellers who don't own cars and families that have downsized to one car.
This is the first-ever launch of a car-sharing program by Green Commuter, a Los Angeles-based startup business that was chosen by the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority, the city's bus service, which funded the program through a $3 million grant from the Tennessee Valley Authority. CARTA will equip some of the electric car charging stations with solar panels that will feed electricity into EPB's power grid.
