Electric bikes have proven to be one of the most effective tools available for getting drivers out of cars and into more affordable, sustainable, and healthier forms of transportation. And as more cities come to that realization, we’re seeing a growing number of e-bike rebates and other subsidy programs rolling out nationwide.

Why would cities and states offer such subsidies for e-bikes?

As it turns out, the subsidies can pay for themselves many times over.

E-bikes don’t just benefit those that use them. They actually benefit everyone. Cities and states across the country are battling with traffic woes, let alone all the pollution and urban grime created by cars.
