Participating bike retailers will need be physically located within Portland and provide both sales and repair services to be eligible to accept rebates. Cargo e-bikes and adaptive electric bikes will receive a higher incentive. People receiving rebates will also be able to use a fixed amount of funds for bike safety equipment, locks, and gear. This will also fund a job program training of 50 e-bike mechanics.
