There are plenty of reasons to switch from a car to an e-bike. E-bikes are eco-friendly, efficient, take up less room than a car, can carry cargo and lower the physical barrier to entry compared to a traditional bike. The biggest downside? The cost. But maybe not for long.

The E-BIKE (Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment) Act could be a way to fix that. Originally introduced in 2021, it morphed into a smaller part of President Biden’s Build Back Better legislation, which became the Inflation Reduction Act, dropping the E-BIKE Act in the process. The bill was reintroduced by four Democratic senators in March, and looks to have a higher, though not guaranteed, chance of being passed this time around.
