Columbus is working to accelerate EV adoption to becoming one of the leading EV markets in the US.  Help us meet the goal by considering a plug-in electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle as your next car.


Our purpose is rooted in Mayor Andrew J. Ginther’s belief that transportation is the great equalizer of the 21st century. We believe that by expanding access to transportation, we can improve access to jobs, education, healthcare and even healthy food and build ladders of opportunity in our community.
