Want more sunlight and fewer red lights? Bruins and all students, staff and faculty at UC campuses can now take advantage of a newly introduced e-bike purchase program.

Following an existing commitment to lower commute emissions and further sustainability at each campus, the new UC E-Bike Purchase Program makes this eco-friendly transportation option more accessible. Through the program, UC students, staff and faculty are eligible for discounted pricing on multiple styles of bikes through four nationally recognized vendors.

Dirwin Bike, Lectric Bike, Ride1Up and Velotric offer affordable pricing, as well as the opportunity to purchase locally and get maintenance support. Available styles include commuter bikes, facilities/cargo bikes and collapsible or folding bikes. The discounts range from 15% to 60%, depending on the vendor and model.
