The Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program (CMO) is a statewide initiative that provides funding for zero-emission shared mobility options to under-resourced communities in California. CMO is available throughout California to eligible disadvantaged communities, as well as eligible low-income tribal and affordable-housing communities, to increase access to safe, reliable, convenient and affordable transportation options. For eligibility requirements, application information and to contact the technical assistance team, please visit www.cleanmobilityoptions.org.

CMO is administered by CALSTART, in partnership with Shared-Use Mobility Center (SUMC), GRID Alternatives, and the Local Government Commission (LGC).

CMO is funded by California Climate Investments (CCI), a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. For more information, visit http://www.caclimateinvestments.ca.gov/.

Kern Council of Governments is administering the CMO for the County of Kern.

Kern COG is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Kern Region as designated by the Federal government, and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) as designated by the State of California.  It is responsible for developing and updating a variety of transportation plans and for allocating the federal and state funds to implement them. While regional transportation planning is its primary role, Kern COG is also involved in other issues that affect the entire region such as air quality. Kern COG provides the forum that brings mayors, city council members and county supervisors together to work on regional issues in a setting that promotes the involvement of the public in the planning process for the Kern region.
