GCC: California governor signs e-bike vouchers bill into law

Tue Sep 10, 2019 1:08 pm

California Senate Bill 400 (SB 400), authored by Senator Thomas J. Umberg (D-Santa Ana) expanding the state’s incentives for turning in old, polluting cars to include vouchers for bikeshare and e-bikes, was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom.

SB 400 adds bikeshare and e-bikes as mobility options in the Clean Cars 4 All Program; proponents expect this will provide a strong incentive for Californians to switch from car to bike travel. . . .

Only if he's willing to live in his car, or in a tent under an overpass. Housing sticker shock can be fatal! :lol:

Probably doesn’t work for out of state registration. But if it did you could buy a junker gasser, road trip here, and turn it in to get yourself a new e-bike. Not sure how you get home.

All in jest, of course.
