Innova Community of the Future

Innova EV, ComEd and the Bronzeville Community - Ride Sharing Mobility Pilot for Seniors

Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood is renowned as an early-20th-century African American business and cultural hub, as it was the center of African American life and historically known as the city's "Black Metropolis."

But with all the cultural capital Bronzeville had accumulated, it still lacked accessible mobility for all. To solve this problem, Innova EV partnered with utility company ComEd and the Bronzeville community to offer affordable, zero-emission transportation for seniors.

Innova EV partnered with Internet2 and several universities to offer an electric vehicle carsharing program to faculty and students.

The pilot program lasted one year (from 2015-2016), and each participating university—University of Wisconsin-Madison, Colorado State University, University of Washington, and University of Pittsburgh—was supplied with four Innova EV vehicles, called Dash, and a mobile phone app for users to access the vehicles.
