e-Bike Sharing

Electric-Assisted Bike Share Pilot Program Update
On November 2, 2020, North Vancouver City Council endorsed an E-Bike Share Policy that sets the groundwork for the City to seek out an e-bike share system operator for a two-year pilot program. The Policy is part of a larger planning framework that will enable the City to issue a permit to an operator. The next step is to amend the City’s applicable bylaws to enable the permit and business license. Once this is complete, operators will be invited to apply .

What is e-bike sharing, anyway?

A typical bike share system consists of a fleet of publicly 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. Similar systems are in place in the City of Vancouver and at the University of British Columbia.

The North Shore system would be the first in the province to provide an all e-bike fleet 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.
