INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- The city of Indianapolis will be feeling a little more electric as a new fleet of vehicles rolls into the city.

An electric car share program is coming to Indianapolis as part of a $35 Million investment by Paris-based Bollore', according to RTV6.

The program will allow city travelers to swipe a card at one of the 25 stations around Indianapolis and get from one destination to another. 125 cars are expected to be on city streets by the end of the year and it's expected that students, downtown residents, and business will use the cars.

Officials from the city say that you will only have to pay for the amount of electricity you use to drive the car.
