The lottery for Atlanta’s E-Bike Rebate Program launches on Sunday, June 16 – that’s less than a month away. Interested in applying for one of the rebates to make your dream of e-assisted riding through Atlanta a reality? Read on. 


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 and close June 23, 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 do I enter the Atlanta E-Bike Rebate Program lottery?

  1. Visit atlantaregional.org/ebikerebate between June 16-23, 2024.
  2. Enter your name, address, email, and phone number.
  3. Check the type of rebate you’d prefer:
    • Standard E-Bike ($500)
    • Standard E-Cargo Bike ($1000)
    • Income Qualified E-Bike ($1500)
    • Income Qualified E-Cargo Bike ($2000)
  4.  Acknowledge the program rules and eligibility.
  5.  You only need to apply once; multiple applications will not increase your chances of receiving a rebate.
  6. If you aren't selected for the first lottery, you'll automatically be entered into subsequent lotteries.

What happens next:

  • Rebate participants will be selected randomly. You will be notified of your status by email.
  • If you are selected, you will be required to provide proof of identity, age, and residency, with additional documentation requirements for income-qualified applicants. 
  • Once your eligibility is confirmed, you will receive a rebate code to use at participating Atlanta bike shops. A list of shops will be available on the website, as well as in your rebate code email. You will have 90 days to redeem the rebate. The rebate will be applied immediately on-site when you purchase your bike.
