e-Bike Sharing

Request for Proposal for an Electric-Assisted Bike Share Pilot Program.
We are currently accepting proposals from bike share companies interested in being involved in our pilot. To learn more about the requirements, and submit your proposal, review our Request for Proposals (RFP) at cnv.org/BCBid.

As part of our commitment to providing healthy, fun, and affordable transportation alternatives, we are collaborating with our neighbouring municipalities to bring electric-assist pedal bike (e-bike) sharing to the North Shore.

What is e-bike sharing, anyway?

A typical bike share system consists of a fleet of publically available bicycles, any of which you can rent for a short period of time. You pick a bike up at one location, and drop it off at any other designated location, making it easy to get around town without need for a car, or even owning your own bike.

Bike share systems have already been successfully implemented in the City of Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria, Richmond, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, and at the University of British Columbia.

The new North Shore system goes one step further, by being the first in the province to provide e-bikes rather than regular bikes.

An e-bike has an integrated electric motor that adds power to your pedaling, so tackling the hilly North Shore terrain will be easier than ever for adults of all ages and abilities.

Next steps for this pilot project

We expect this new pilot project to launch in the summer of 2019, and run for approximately one year.

At the end of the pilot, staff will review and assess, and make recommendations for next steps.
