What Is GoForth?

GoForth is an electric vehicle (EV) carsharing service in Oregon. Our goal is to provide access to affordable all-electric cars to test drive and use for errands, shopping or appointments.

GoForth is available to anyone over 21 years of age with a valid driver's license, relatively clean driving record, and a valid credit, debit or bank card. Members have access to a network of cars in communities throughout Oregon.

The first four-hour ride with GoForth is free. Recurring rentals are $4 per hour.

More Info

GoForth has two primary uses:

  1. Free, no-contact, no-pressure, self-service EV test-drives to experience the joys of driving electric, every driver’s first test drive is free. 

  2. Carsharing for communities. Several vehicles will be located at affordable housing developments. After the initial free test drive, subsequent reservations can be made on the platform for a low hourly fee, providing affordable, personal, on-demand transportation to local residents.

What is carsharing?

Carsharing is a system where individuals have access to a network of vehicles for short-term rental. You can view where cars are located and make reservations in a few simple steps using the carsharing app. With GoForth CarShare, the first drive is free but there is a small hourly fee for each additional ride. Drivers must verify their license information prior to reserving a car.

What's an electric car?

Electric cars drive much like traditional cars. The pedals, steering wheel and controls are the same, but they are fueled by electricity instead of gas. They charge through a plug, just like your phone.
