Clean cities are our future, and the city of Bastrop, Texas is leading the way. This busy town with a strong commitment to rural mobility and sustainability now has access to an eco-friendly microtransit system called CARTS Now. Backed by eCab‘s fleet of open-air electric vehicles, the system coordinates intracity service, with a vision of increasing access within the Bastrop community.
Our activities today have a critical impact on tomorrow, which is why MTM is committed to helping eCab, the city of Bastrop, the Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance, and the Capital Area Rural Transportation System spread the word about their innovative new service. Funded by a Department of Energy grant, this unique pilot is making local transportation options more environmentally friendly.
