“This program helps address twin challenges we have in Atlanta: Climate change and traffic congestion,” Atlanta City Council Member Matt Westmoreland said. “This offers an incentive to encourage people to get out of their vehicles and do so in a climate-friendly way.”

Atlanta is the first city in Georgia to offer this rebate program, though other cities in the south like Tampa and Raleigh have offered this program previously.

Rebate applications must be submitted, starting Sunday, here: atlantaregional.org/ebikerebate.
