Recharge Wrap-up: da Costa signs with Andretti Formula E; America's saddest bus stops

ReachNow adds 'park and fly' service at Sea-Tac

Portugese driver António Félix da Costa has signed on with Andretti Formula E for the third season of the open-wheel, electric racing series. He'll drive alongside teammate Robin Frijns in the Number 28 MS Amlin Andretti ATEC-002. "I have always loved the way Americans go racing, and how they do sports in general," says Félix da Costa. "I'm a big fan of IndyCar and, to me, Andretti Autosport has always been an iconic team." Félix da Costa finished in eighth place in Season One with Amlin Aguri, and 13th in Season Two for Team Aguri just behind Frijns in 12th for Andretti. Season 3 begins in Hong Kong on October 9, 2016.

The ReachNow carsharing has added "park and fly" service at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. ReachNow members will now have access to the service's cars at the nearby Wally Park Premier Garage. Users can also drop cars off in ReachNow parking spots and ride a free shuttle to the airport when they fly out of Sea-Tac. "Members have always had the opportunity to use the cars to drive out of town for the weekend, but, this expansion gives them even more flexibility to fly away as well," says ReachNow CEO Steve Banfield. ReachNow's Seattle-area fleet includes 520 BMW and Mini vehicles, including the BMW i3 EV. Read more from BMW.

Voters have chosen "America's Sorriest Bus Stop." Located in Silver Springs, Maryland, the stop won the tournament-style bracket for its unlit location on a busy highway with no sidewalk or nearby crosswalk. It's possible, though, that this stop and others in its home county could get some much needed improvements. Coming in second place is an unmarked Kansas City stop near the Royals' home field of Kauffman Stadium.
