USA: Small electric vehicles occupy downtown Dallas

DALLAS (AP) — No, those aren’t golf carts zipping through Uptown and downtown Dallas.

They’re street-legal electric vehicles that fall somewhere above golf carts in the automotive pecking order — and they’re filling a niche in the busy entertainment districts.

“It’s about options,” said Gary Haag, owner of E-FROGS, an electric shuttle service he started in June 2010.

Rides are free. The business operates on tips.

Haag said people are surprised to learn there’s no cost, but Dallas ordinances prohibit charging a fee for the type of vehicle Haag operates.

“I felt not charging would be beneficial anyways,” said Haag, who believes he generates more money with tips than he would with a flat fee.
