Vehicles – Shopping, Sharing, and Service for Cars in Milpitas

Milpitas has been a car-town since its inception when it incorporated around the new Ford factory being built here. A fair number of the Mustangs built at that factory have been lovingly maintained by local residents, and we look forward each June to the car show.

Research on Transportation Choices
Our low carbon transportation choices research program seeks to: 1) improve our understanding of household transportation and vehicle choices, 2) understand market forces, consumer acceptance, and real-world emission benefits of new and used plug-in electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles, and 3) increase the adoption of clean vehicles across households of all income levels and optimize equitable distribution and return on investment of clean vehicle incentives.

Transportation Fund for Clean Air
