511 Contra Costa’s E-Bike Rebate Program
In late 2020, CCTA’s Transportation Demand Management program, 511 Contra Costa, launched an innovative pilot program which offers residents of Contra Costa County cash rebates for new electric bicycles (e-bikes). The countywide program, dubbed the E-Bike Rebate program, is designed to build public awareness about e-bikes as a clean, convenient, and inexpensive mode of everyday transportation to replace car trips.
The program has been running for a little over a year and has issued 500+ rebates, garnering rave reviews from e-bike users.
At CCTA’s January 2022 Board Meeting, AMG’s Kirsten Riker provided an update on the success of the program. The presentation can be viewed below.
