City Wins E-bike Rebate Grant

The City won a $150,000 Mobility Grant from Pacific Power to fund a rebate program to help low-income households in Bend purchase electric bicycles.

The electric bike (e-bike) instant rebate program will provide a rebate of $2,000 each to 75 qualified transportation-disadvantaged, low-income households in Bend to be used toward the purchase of an e-bike. To quality, applicants must be considered low-income and live within Pacific Power territory in Bend.

“Bend is an excellent city for e-mobility year-round,” said Mayor Pro Tem Anthony Broadman. “In places where rebates have been offered, riders have replaced more than three car trips a week with e-bikes. I am grateful to our partners at Pacific Power who see the value of new, sustainable, climate- friendly options for getting around our city.”

Pacific Power is providing grant funding to help businesses, cities and nonprofits take advantage of the cost-saving, clean benefits of electric mobility. The City of Bend joins several other organizations across Pacific Power’s service area that have received grants for clean electric mobility projects through a competitive-evaluation process.

Funding for this grant is made possible by the Oregon Clean Fuels Program administered by the state Department of Environmental Quality. For more information visit

The City will work with Commute Options to disperse the grant funds through a subrecipient agreement. Commute Options’ mission is to increase access to transportation options across Oregon.

Commute Options will partner with local e-bike retailers and the rebate will be paid directly to the retailers, removing as many financial barriers as possible for participants. Participants will be able to visit a participating retailer and automatically deduct the $2,000 from the purchase at the point of sale.

The rebates will be awarded via a lottery process and the first lottery will take place in the Spring. More information will be available at that time.

“I’ve had the good fortune of getting to and from City Hall for every council meeting over the last two years on an e-bike so I have seen what is possible,” Broadman said. “The key now is to make sure that as many people in our community, especially those with fewer resources, have access to sustainable modes of transportation. Climate action must be equitable.”

Ferguson Road Traffic Impacts

The City project for Ferguson Sewer Improvements will begin after the new year. Ferguson Road will be closed to eastbound traffic between King Solomon Lane and Ferguson Court beginning January 3, 2023, weather permitting. Please follow detour signs. The graphic of the traffic control is shown below. A few things to note:

  • The contractor will temporarily relocate mailboxes (either to the other side of the road or on the same side of the road but outside of the work zone) if they are inaccessible during construction. Mailboxes will be replaced to their original locations following construction.
  • For garbage and recycle pick up, the homeowner or contractor  will wheel the bins to outside the work zone if they become inaccessible for pick-up during construction.
  • The school bus routes/detour have been coordinated with BLSD. The bus stops along Ferguson Road will remain in-place and there will be access for the riders to wait and load the bus. There will be a flagger on site to assist as needed.
  • Local access to homes and side streets and access to emergency vehicles will be provided at all times.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if further coordination is warranted so as not to disrupt service to the homeowners.
