We plan to partner with Civic Center Eats (food truck market) where two thousand people eat lunch during the week. We will close Bannock Street in front of the City and County building and host test drives with multiple EV models and e-bikes. The first 100 people to test drive will receive a free lunch at the food trucks. Also along Bannock will be an EV car show where EV owners, City fleet vehicles, and electric business fleets will showcase different models and interact with the public. Vehicles will also be staged at various points throughout the food truck area to interact with attendees and point them to the test drive and EV car show.
