511 Contra Costa’s new incentive program is designed to encourage county residents to replace local car trips with non-polluting electric bike (E-bike) trips. E-bikes can provide more flexibility, greater independence and safer socially distant personal space than public transit or ride-sharing.
Perfect for commuting, errands and recreational riding — adults of all ages will enjoy the fun and easy cruising that comes from the electric pedal-assisted boost. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries that can be plugged into standard power outlets.
A limited number of $150 (standard) and $300 (low income) rebates are available for Contra Costa residents. Learn more here.
