E-Bike Loans: Transforming New York

RSVP here.

Join us for a webinar about alternative transportation solutions that can transform New York.

People face transportation challenges like pollution, long commute times, traffic congestion and insufficient parking all over New York. Low- and moderate-income communities are often particularly hard hit. Groups around the state are working to expand the use of e-bikes, scooters and other electric and active transportation modes to reduce vehicle traffic and improve quality of life. The Equitable Commute Project is working to help essential workers and others purchase e-bikes with innovative low-cost, no credit score financing from Spring Bank. The ECP and Spring Bank will share their model that can be replicated around the state. Speakers include: 
  • Leah Golby, President, NYS Bicycling Coalition
  • Marianna Koval, Director, Invest NYC SDG, NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business
  • Jared Rodriguez, Principal, Emergent Urban Concepts
  • Melanie Stern, NYS CDFI Coalition board member and Director, Consumer Lending, Spring Bank

About ECP:
ECP launched its pilot program in December 2021, matching 15 lower-income essential workers with subsidized e-bikes in the Bronx. The project is a finalist in NYSERDA’s Electric Mobility Challenge for underserved communities, and ECP hopes to be able to demonstrate replicability outside of New York City.
