May 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

Friday Transportation Seminars at Portland State University have been a tradition since 2000. You can join us online at 11:30 AM. All presentations are recorded and shared on the event page afterwards. We anticipate also offering this seminar in person - This page will be updated soon with location information.

THE TOPIC
John MacArthur and Cameron Bennett of Portland State University will be presenting the findings and recommendations from their recent white paper "Using E-Bike Incentive Programs to Expand the Market – Trends and Best Practices." This will include a review of the 50+ current, past, and proposed e-bike purchase incentive programs in North America, including summary statistics and details from exemplary programs. Best practice gained from review of the programs and discussion with program managers, industry professionals, and other stakeholders will be shared. A discussion of the benefits of promoting e-bike uptake in regard to mode shift, VMT, emissions, and human health will be provided to support the value added by an incentive program. Finally, John and Cameron will preview upcoming results from their stated preference survey intended to provide quantitative guidance for e-bike purchase incentive program design.

This event is part of Portland State University's annual Research Week, hosted May 2 - 6, learn more.
