Government monopoly sounds great, if you work there
Drivers who hand over the keys to their old gas-guzzler to get behind the wheel of a new electric vehicle can receive financial incentives of up to $8,000 from the provincial and federal governments.
But the governmental generosity does not seem to extend to those who want to hop on an electric-assist bicycle. Greater Victoria cycling advocates question why more incentives are not offered to get people to consider two-wheel transportation.
Currently, the only incentive offered to cyclists is $850 rebate through B.C.’s Scrap-It program if you scrap your car. But many are not willing to sacrifice a vehicle in the event of a lengthy trip or when the weather turns nasty.
Since 2015 the B.C. Cycling Coalition has asked for PST to be waived on electric-assist bikes, something that already applies to regular bikes. With the price of a new electric-assist cargo bike starting at around $3,000, elimination of the PST would represent a $210 incentive for prospective riders.
Let us know what you think. Take our poll and share your view on whether there should be more incentives for those who purchase electric bicycles.
