Fast Act Corridor Designations
The Federal Highway Administration designates national plug-in electric vehicle charging and hydrogen, propane, and natural-gas-fueling corridors in strategic locations along major highways to improve the mobility of alternative fuel vehicles. PennDOT has participated in the nomination of alternative fuel corridors to improve mobility of passenger and commercial vehicles that employ alternative fueling technologies across the commonwealth. To date, more than 1,800 miles of PA roadway have been designated as alternative fuels corridors for at least one fuel type.

The Drive Electric PA Coalition (DEPA)
Efforts to promote electric vehicle adoption are increasing nationally as more states and cities see the value of reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the potential for new economic opportunities. The DEP Energy Programs Office began collaborating in 2016 with PennDOT and stakeholders statewide in a planning process intended to increase the acceptance and adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by state government agencies, local governments, businesses, industry, and the general public in Pennsylvania.
