E-Bike Sharing

E-Bike Share Permit Applications Now Closed
The City has closed the application period for e-bike share permit applications. We are currently reviewing the applications, and will provide updates on operator selection in Spring 2021.

What is E-Bike Share?

E-bike share is a short-term rental program for electric bikes. Residents sign-up to participate and have access to rent an e-bike from a fleet available at a variety of public locations. Members pick a bike up at one location and drop it off at another designated location, for a fee. E-bike share, provides an easy, cost effective, environmentally sensitive transportation option. Similar bike share systems are in place in the City of Vancouver and at the University of British Columbia. Once in place, the North Shore e-bike share system will be the first of its kind in the province.

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.

How Will the Pilot Program Work?

One company will be granted a permit to operate an e-bike share system in North Vancouver. The permit is granted on a pilot basis, and will last for two years. During this period, the City will assess the success of the program based on how well it meets the goals outlined in our E-Bike Share Policy. We will regularly review user data and public feedback, and will regularly report on the pilot’s status to Council.
