LCTI: Oakland E-Bike Library
Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program
City of Oakland Department of Transportation | Oakland E-Bike Library
Project Status: Awarded
This page is currently under development and will be updated once the voucher agreement has been executed.
The City of Oakland will use the Clean Mobility Options Mobility Project Voucher to fund an electric bike library. Electric bikes are a transformative technology that can greatly increase the range and accessibility of bicycles while helping reduce dependence on car ownership. However, they are prohibitively expensive for many low-income communities. Adaptive bikes, which serve persons with disabilities, are particularly expensive. The Oakland E-bike Library will provide priority communities with access to affordable medium and long-term rentals with approximately 500 e-bikes, cargo bikes, adaptive bikes and scooters, while supporting community-run bike shops to perform maintenance and educate users.
Voucher Total: $1,000,000
The City of Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) is the local government that will lead the project.
