  • I suffer from physical and neurological disabilities that prevent me from riding a regular bike. I am lucky enough to have had the resources to get an e-bike and now I commute to work and run errands by e-bike. E-bikes can open the world of cycling up to the disabled, people who may not be able to cycle at all otherwise.

    Air Resources Board Bike Purchase Incentive Petition

    The California Bicycle Coalition, along with several coalition partners, has presented a new idea to the California Air Resources Board (ARB). The ARB distributes funds for the Clean Vehicle Rebate Program, which offers rebates for electric vehicles; we're asking them to expand their program to include the cleanest vehicle of all: the bicycle.

    We are seeking the creation of a $10 million Bicycle Purchase Incentive Pilot Program. The program would provide vouchers for half of the cost of bikes that are commonly used for commuting, up to a maximum rebate of $500—or $1000 for electric bicycles. Under the program, California would pay for half the cost of cargo bikes, electric bikes, folding bikes, bike share, and other utilitarian bicycles used for everyday transportation. This could be huge.
