E-bikes are growing in popularity in cities, especially as they become more affordable and accessible with the support of financial incentives and bikeshare programs. E-bikes can substitute for high-polluting, high-speed cars and two-wheelers, covering longer-distance trips with less effort compared to conventional bicycles. At the same time, safety concerns and standards for e-bikes need to be considered.

ITDP’s new report, E-bikes: Charging Toward Compact Cycling Cities, provides the first global overview of how e-bikes are being used and their potential for passenger and freight transport. It also evaluates barriers that limit e-bike use in different contexts, and what cities and national governments can do to ramp up access to and use of e-bikes to achieve broader sustainable transport goals.

In this webinar, we will dive into these concepts with an overview of the report and its recommendations, and hear about the potential for e-bikes in Kenya and Indonesia.
