Burlington E-Bike Subsides & E-Bike Lending Library
Back in October of 2016 VBike set up a meeting with the Burlington Electric Department to begin exploring the idea of electric bike subsides. VBike has been working on this e-bike subsidy program with Local Motion, Old Spokes Home and the Burlington Electric Dept for the past year!!
It's all live now and complete with a growing E-Bike Lending Library. Burlington residents can try out an e-bike or e-cargo bike for a few days to see how it might work for their everyday mobility. It's modeled after VBike's Take it Home Program.
Next move - we're going to go statewide with subsidies and Lending Library pods.
The page has a link to VBike and our work with Local Motion to make this happen, as well as our free bike consultations for Vernomters. That's still a one-of-a-kind program in the US!! Let's move this thing.
