Driver Survey

Forth is surveying and collecting data on EV rideshare drivers in Portland, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Phoenix as part of the Department of Energy-funded WestSmart program. Drivers will be surveyed on topics including charging locations, pricing and availability.

Participating drivers will be compensated.

Additional compensation is available to drivers who download the FlexCharging app to track their charging times and locations.

If you are a rideshare or gig driver in one of these markets and are interested in participating, please follow this link for a brief survey to see if you qualify.

Driving Electric Is Good for Business

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.

Profits Up. Expenses Down.

Bottom line, your next car purchase has to pencil out. Sure, electric cars cost less to charge than filling up at the tank, but how much do you really save?

60% LOWER FUEL COST

.99 cents of electric charging goes about the same distance as one gallon of gas.

TAX & DEALER INCENTIVES

With federal and state tax breaks, plus rebates from the manufacturer, you could save up to $10,000

ALMOST ZERO UPKEEP

Fewer parts could save you hundreds or even thousands in annual maintenance.
