DENVER (CBS4)– Less than three weeks after its launch, the City of Denver has reached its rebate limit for the popular e-bike rebate program. The voucher offers $400 or $1,200 back depending on the bike or the person’s income level.

“Denver, we’re amazed,” said Grace Rink, Denver’s climate manager. “There is a clear desire for e-bikes and to try a healthier, more sustainable way to get around our beautiful city. Our office’s job is to find climate solutions that directly benefit residents, and I think we have a clear winner here.

Now, the city will transition to a limited release model as funding becomes available throughout the year. Interested Denver residents can sign up for notifications for when the application will be online again.

Since launching the program on Earth Day, the city has received 3,250 requests for e-bike rebates. Forty percent of these applications are income-tested, representing 55% of the program’s available funding.

According to Denver, residents who have already requested a refund will not be affected by the application pause, and those requests will be processed within 10 business days. Residents who have already received a discount voucher will still be able to use it at a participating bike shop within 60 days of issue.
