As electric assist bikes become more prevalent, cities must figure out how to integrate these devices into existing transportation networks. View this webinar to understand the spectrum of options and get the grounding you need to introduce this topic to your community’s stakeholders.
John MacArthur, the Sustainable Transportation Program Manager for TREC at Portland State University, explains the definition and classifications of electric assist bikes, discusses the speed differential of these devices, and provides a review of current North American regulations. Marni Ratzel, Senior Transportation Manager at the City of Boulder, presents the background and results of Boulder’s Electric Bike Pilot Project, which has temporarily allowed the use of e-bikes on paved multiuse paths. The project provides an outstanding model for testing e-bike use, integrating public concerns into regulations, and evaluating results.
