City of Mountain View Community Shuttles


The City of Mountain View, California provides free zero-emission transportation to its residents using 5 Motiv-powered shuttle buses. In operation since 2015, this is Motiv’s longest running fleet and is still running 365 days a year, well past the designed project lifetime.

Mountain View’s free community shuttles help keep the air clean, alleviate traffic congestion, and provide affordable transportation options to underserved communities such as seniors and youths.
