The city of Seattle wants to significantly expand its electric mobility options, and a broad citywide plan outlines how it would try to achieve that by 2030.
In March, the city released an outline of goals to meet by the end of the decade: Convert to using electric bikes, scooters, taxis, Ubers and Lyfts. Make its entire municipal fleet free of fossil fuels. Encourage residents to walk, bike or use electric vehicle transportation for 9 out of 10 trips they take.
Following this "blueprint" will slash Seattle's greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, limit the city's contribution to water pollution and mitigate climate change risks, proponents of the plan say.
