Fair Financing For Rideshare Drivers

Forth has launched the Fair Financing Pilot to help rideshare drivers purchase electric cars

The program enables low- to middle-income rideshare drivers to access low-interest financing for electric vehicles—increasing earning potential by eliminating expenses like gas and maintenance of typical internal combustion vehicles. 

Rates will be below 9.9% and vary depending on credit and income.

Rideshare driving in Portland is now more accessible, equitable and eco-friendly with the new Fair Financing Pilot from Forth and its partners.

Electric cars are much cheaper to operate and maintain than traditional cars, and they are increasingly affordable. Many electric cars can be leased for under $200/month, and some three-year-old electric cars can be purchased used for less than $10,000.

We've created a podcast covering topics specific to rideshare and delivery drivers interested in learning more about how an electric vehicle can maximize profits by reducing costs in fuel and maintenance. 

We've spoken to multiple rideshare and delivery drivers to get their perspectives on why driving electric works for them.
