You may see some of these cute electric cars around Hermosa Beach this weekend (June 7-9). It’s part of a pilot program that the city of Hermosa Beach has agreed to for the weekend. A new company called Swoopkar wants to offer a clean energy alternative for short distance public transportation. This weekend Swoopkar will be servicing the guests of The Beach House.
Pricing for a trip is based on zones. From the Hermosa Pier to the Manhattan Beach Pier is $7.75 for as many people who fit in the car, I was told by one of the reps.
Swoopkar’s mission is to “provide a clean energy, community focused, public transportation service to communities nationwide; offering exceptional, reliable, and responsible service while supporting local environmental initiatives.” And not only will it help the environment, the company thinks their electric carts will help foster a fun, upscale feel in the beach communities… kinda like Weekend at Bernie’s!
If you want to see more of these car’s around town, please visit www.swoopkar.com and sign the petition.
