The Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) is currently accepting applications for the Bucks for Bikes incentive program. This program helps commuters to get out of their single occupancy vehicles and use a non-polluting, active, traffic relieving mode of travel—bicycling!
Interested applicants who live and work or attend school (must be 18 years of age or older) in Placer County may receive 50%, up to $200 towards the cost of a new commuter bike*. Applications, along with a quote from a bike shop located in Placer County, must be received by March 8, 2011.
The application package and policies can be downloaded below. Applications are also available online at www.pctpa.net.
This is a great opportunity if you are interested in commuting by bike and allows you to start logging your cycling miles for the region’s May is Bike Month promotion.
Should you have any questions regarding the Bucks for Bikes program, please contact Solvi Sabol at PCTPA, firstname.lastname@example.org and (530) 823-4029, or Sue Schooley at the City of Roseville, email@example.com and (916) 774-5365.
* Funding is limited and not everyone who applies or is eligible will be awarded a subsidy. Funding is provided from a clean air grant from Placer County Air Pollution Control District.
