[ARCHIVED] EmGo! A New Sustainable Option for Commuting in Downtown Eugene

TransLoc App

EmGo is a year-long pilot project by Lane Transit District, Lane Council of Governments, Lane County, and City of Eugene to provide a convenient mobility-on-demand option for those who live, work, and enjoy all that downtown Eugene has to offer. The service is operated by RideZero.

EmGo helps ease parking and traffic congestion to improve livability and workability in downtown while supporting local businesses by providing shoppers with convenient transportation to travel down the street or to the other side of downtown.

Riders can schedule EmGo by using a mobile phone app. EmGo picks the rider up at the closest downtown EmGo stop and delivers them to any of the 70+ downtown locations. The app can be downloaded by searching for Transloc or

EmGo vehicles are electric and carry five passengers (plus the driver). Built by Polaris, the EmGo is powered by a 48V AC battery. EmGo can travel nearly 70 miles before needing a battery recharge. With a GVWR of 3,000 pounds, the EmGo’s top speed is 25 MPH.

EmGo is free for users and will operate Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.


“LTD is pleased to partner with the City of Eugene, Lane County, Lane Council of Governments and RideZero to offer another way to reduce our community’s carbon foot print, while providing convenient downtown transportation,” Jackson said. “The partners will evaluate the EmGo pilot program in the summer of 2020 to determine its viability as a permanent downtown Eugene mobility option.”
