The latest electric car-sharing site in the greater Chattanooga area is open on the Southern Adventist University campus. Two Nissan Leafs are available for the community to rent. The charging station is also open to the public and can be used for free.

Solar panels on the roof of the station provide the electricity used to power the cars. The car-sharing station represents a partnership between Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA), Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Electric Power Board (EPB), Green Commuter, Provo Group, and Southern.
