According to the January release, the shuttle is currently running as a three-month test that’s slated to conclude in April. The electric vehicles operate three days each week — Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and they offer multiple hop-on points across the city’s downtown. The new electric vehicles will be large enough to fit a driver and 3 to 4 other riders, the release said. The program is operated by Let’s Ride Atlanta, a minority-owned small business founded in 2018 that offers free electric shuttle services in Atlanta.
