Electric Vehicle and Mobility Infrastructure Framework


Framework Overview  

As part of the City of Chicago’s goals to reduce transportation carbon emissions and advance environmental justice, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is developing a framework plan to equitably advance Electric Vehicle (EV) and e-mobility infrastructure improvements in Chicago. This framework will serve as a roadmap for CDOT to evaluate, plan, and identify opportunities to create greater accessibility to EVs and e-mobility, streamline the regulatory and design process for public charging infrastructure deployment, and pilot curbside charging. Along with Chicago’s continued work to advance active transportation options like walking, biking, and taking transit, this EV and Mobility Infrastructure Framework will guide investments to support a more equitable and sustainable future for Chicago residents.
