E-Bike Library and ZEV Plan

At the July 17, 2021 BPAC meeting, Kerby Olsen, New Mobility Supervisor at OakDOT, introduced the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Action Plan and the upcoming Electric Bike Library. Topics explored in the ZEV Plan include the installation of electric vehicle chargers in the public right of way, increasing access to ebikes and e-scooters, and encouraging cargo bike delivery services. The Electric Bike Library is a grant-funded, $1,000,000 project to purchase 1,000 electric bicycles and make them available for medium- or long- term rental at low cost through existing bike shops and bike programs.
