What is the Atlanta E-Bike Rebate Program?

The program, the product of years of advocacy by Propel ATL will give $800,000 in rebates to people purchasing e-bikes. Three-quarters of those funds will be set aside for people earning 80% or less of the Atlanta region’s median household income. The program is a partnership of Propel ATL, The Atlanta Regional Commission, and the City of Atlanta and will launch June 16, 2024.

  • Income-qualified residents are eligible to receive a $1,500 rebate for a standard e-bike and $2,000 for a cargo e-bike. 
  • Rebates for other residents are $500 for a standard e-bike and $1,000 for a cargo e-bike. 
  • Rebates are limited to one per resident and bikes must be purchased at a participating local bike shop
  • About 800 to 1,000 e-bikes are expected to be purchased through the rebate program.

How the Atlanta E-Bike Rebate Program got its start

2022: Inspired by the success of cities like Denver and Boston, Propel ATL begins conversations with Atlanta city council members about the possibility of starting a program to foster e-bike affordability in Atlanta.

December 2022: Following months of advocacy by Propel ATL and its supporters, Atlanta City Council introduces legislation to launch an e-bike rebate program for Atlanta residents. A working group, which includes Propel ATL and other organizations, forms to make recommendations based on lessons learned in other cities.

October 2023: City Councilmember Matt Westmoreland introduces a resolution calling for a $1 million city of Atlanta pilot e-bike rebate program to be managed by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC). Propel ATL will lead outreach, engagement, and education. The program will prioritize equity by dedicating a majority of rebates to low-income households and by providing an upfront “point-of-sale” rebate.

January 2024: Atlanta City Council approves the e-bike rebate program.

June 16, 2024: The program launches!
