Event Details

Mountain Bus Electric Vehicle, in collaboration with the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, will host its fall Electric Vehicle (EV) Ride and Drive event at the Howelsen Hill parking lot on October 10th. The event is part of a greater effort to promote the city’s Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan.

According to the EV Readiness Plan, Routt County experienced a 34% increase in combined carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles between 2005 and 2021. Gasoline-powered vehicles accounted for 66% of transportation-related emissions in the County and 82% in the City. The City’s program focuses on infrastructure, accessibility and permitting to address these issues to create a more sustainable system.

Importantly, transitioning to electric vehicles aligns with the CAP goal of increasing EV adoption to 20% of registered vehicles by 2030 and 95% by 2050.
