A Community Electric Car Share is coming to Roxbury!

“Good2Go is an equity focused, income-tiered electric car share. It’s an affordable way to access convenient, clean transportation in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood. Roxbury is a state-designated environmental justice community that has been disproportionately affected by climate change. It’s time to change that, starting with improving our air quality through electric vehicles (EVs). Members can count on Good2Go’s EV fleet as a safe, affordable, and environmentally friendly transportation choice that serves as a complement to public transportation. It provides an option for errands, appointments, and for small business owners to deliver goods.”

In addition to their low rates, what sets Good2Go apart is their dedication to community. The program is made possible through a collaboration of local non-profits and national shared mobility organizations. They strive to make everyone’s voice heard – members, neighbors and the Roxbury community at large – as they work collectively toward building a vision for a shared clean transportation future.

Currently, Good2Go is looking for beta testers to help give feedback on the electric car share experience. Check out the flyer below and their website for more info!

POSTPONED – After reflection, Nuestra believes it would be appropriate to delay the community Zoom meeting scheduled for June 10th out of respect for the impact of our two national pandemics–racism and COVID19–on Roxbury residents. The staff at Nuestra and our design partners, MASS Design and IBI Placemaking, are personally impacted and strained. Additionally, we believe a different kind engagement process over the coming weeks and months can contribute to finalizing the design for a public park that best serves the needs of the Roxbury community.
