Bend Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan


The community is invited to learn more about the Bend Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan and provide input to inform the plan online through March 11.

To increase electric vehicle use in Bend, the City is developing the Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan. It will establish goals, timelines and strategies to enable a broad transition to electric vehicles across the community. This transition will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the City achieve its climate action goals. It is a key strategy in the Community Climate Action Plan and the Bend Transportation System Plan.

This plan will include a focus on ensuring that access to electric vehicle charging is equitably distributed across the community, and that the benefits of electrified transportation are shared by everyone, including underserved populations.

The City hired a consultant to conduct research, analyze data and engage stakeholders to inform the plan’s recommendations. The City is incorporating feedback from key stakeholders and Council advisory committees, and also welcomes input from the public. To provide input, the community is invited to participate through this online feedback form. The feedback opportunity is open until March 11.
