The Scottish Government is providing £900,000 to encourage the uptake of e-bikes across Scotland. Local authorities, public sector agencies, community groups and further and higher education institutions can now apply for money to adopt e-bikes, adaptive bikes and e-cargo bikes as an alternative to car journeys.
For the first time, the eBike Grant Fund delivered by Energy Saving Trust will also launch a Business e-cargo project to offer businesses the chance of a free trial of an e-cargo bike for a 12-month period. This will allow Transport Scotland and Energy Saving Trust to gather new data on the real potential for e-cargo bikes to address business needs.
