From the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator's press release:
The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA), in partnership with Pedal Movement, officially launched a new, first-of-its-kind zero-emission, micro-mobility pilot, making e-bikes and e-cargo bikes available for affordable rental to Rancho San Pedro residents. LACI and HACLA also announced their commitment to extend the successful EV Car Share pilot program at Rancho San Pedro for another year.
"E-bikes are going to play a prominent role in the transformation of how we move people and goods emission-free through the greater Los Angeles region, especially in dense urban areas," said Matt Petersen, LACI's President and CEO. "We're glad to bring this exciting new transportation technology to residents who suffer from exposure to the Los Angeles region's worst air pollution and lack access to transportation. It's time we brought clean transportation technology to the communities bearing the burden of fossil fuel emissions."
"Residents of the Rancho San Pedro community rely heavily on mass transportation, but most of their essential destinations are within 2-3 miles of home. E-bikes and e-cargo bikes will fill a neglected transportation need that is critically important to underserved residents," said HACLA Chief Strategic Development Officer Jenny Scanlin. "We are proud to host the first e-bike fleet pilot for affordable housing residents, and are excited to collaborate once again with LACI on this exciting innovation in urban transportation."
