Program Overview

Learn about the steps you can take to replace your vehicle and receive funding.

Vehicle Replacement Process

Bay Area residents must complete an application to verify eligibility.

If the application is approved, bring your current vehicle to an authorized dismantler for a pre-inspection to verify vehicle eligibility.

If your vehicle passes pre-inspection and you sign an agreement, you will receive an award letter to bring to an authorized dealership to purchase or lease a new or used hybrid, plug-in, or electric vehicle OR get a Clipper Card.

After you’ve replaced your vehicle, you must scrap your old vehicle at an authorized dismantler.
