Borrow an E-bike or a Cargo E-bike through our Traveling E-Bike Lending Library!
E-bikes are a transportation option that is becoming more familiar and necessary, and the goal of this program is to introduce Vermonters to how they can be incorporated into everyday life and replace car trips. From commuting to work to picking up groceries and carrying kids to school, e-bikes provide an extra boost of power that makes miles feel shorter and cargo feel lighter.
Local Motion's Traveling E-bike Lending Library will be in several locations this spring and summer, thanks to our hosts, which consist of towns, libraries, and energy committees across Vermont. Head to the How it Works section below to reserve an e-bike for a test ride.
