BC Electric Bike Rebate Program: Affordable and Sustainable Transportation

BC Electric Bike Rebate Program: Affordable and Sustainable Transportation

The BC Electric Bike Rebate Program launching on June 1, 2023, is a significant step towards promoting clean and accessible transportation options for residents of British Columbia. By offering rebates based on income, this program aims to make electric bikes (e-bikes) more affordable for everyone.

Funding for the program is limited, so customers who act quickly are most likely to reap the benefits. Here’s how the program works:
