Cedar Rapids developing bike voucher program for low-income families

Posted on

“You’ve heard of subsidized housing— right now, Cedar Rapids is looking at subsidized biking. According to research, having a car is a big financial burden, but not having one can means a person risks being ‘locked out of the economy.’ Officials in Cedar Rapids are looking at bikes as a solution for helping lower-income households. They are working on a program that would offer vouchers to these families to help them buy a bike. Under the city’s plan, once people are approved, they can either get a $700 voucher for a bike or $900 for an electric bike.”
