This program is designed to increase bicycle ridership and reduce car trips in the region, and as a result, improve air quality. Anyone over 18 who lives or works in North Natomas may apply. Selected applicants participate in a 14-hour course on bike handling, maintenance, and road rules. We ask them to complete the course, plus a couple of follow-up surveys and a pledge to increase their trips made by bicycle. In return, we give them a $450 voucher towards a new bicycle.
Application period for the next class will open early 2020.
