Lyft is partnering with PGE to provide free charging for its drivers with electric cars.
According to the company, Lyft drivers will be able to charge their cars at several Portland-metro locations for free. The offer includes the newly-opened Hillsboro station.
"There is no greater imperative right now than fighting the effects of climate change, which requires addressing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation," Dave Robertson, vice president of public policy at Portland General Electric, said. "We're proud to fuel Lyft's mission to minimize its impact on the environment with a robust and healthy EV charging network, as it aligns with our goal to help deploy electric transportation that severs everyone — regardless of how they choose to move throughout our region."
Lyft riders can already request electric vehicle drivers using "Green Mode" in the app.
