August 17, 2023: The Town of Winter Park has approved a new e-bike rebate program to encourage residents and visitors to use electric bicycles for transportation. The program will provide a rebate of 25% of the cost of an e-bike, up to $150, for those who purchase a new e-bike on or after May 1, 2023.
The e-bike rebate program is part of the Town’s efforts to promote sustainable transportation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. E-bikes are a low-carbon alternative to cars and can help to improve air quality and reduce traffic congestion.
To be eligible for the rebate, applicants must be residents or employees of Winter Park and provide proof of purchase of an e-bike. The refund will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and the Town has allocated $10,000 for the program.
