Low-income residents in SF can get $1,000 in e-bike rebates

Posted on

“The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is offering $1,000 in rebates to low-income residents who want to purchase new e-bikes. Why it matters: The price of an e-bike is often a barrier to access — the recreational equipment company REI puts the cost around $2,000 on average, though it can fluctuate depending on components like motor and design. The new rebate program is the agency’s first attempt at incentivizing a micromobility transportation option — which generally encompasses small, low-speed, electric-powered devices like e-bikes and electric scooters — as the city continues efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”
