E-Bikes: Sustainable Transportation

Hayward's Climate Change Strategy promotes e-Bike ownership to cut greenhouse gas emissions. E-bikes offer a fun, versatile way to travel, expanding biking accessibility for all!


The city's Micromobility Feasibility Study, finished in late 2023, offers short-term solutions to reduce driving, parking demand, and boost walking, biking, and transit. By embracing e-bikes, Hayward advances towards eco-friendly transportation.

A climate leader, Hayward adopted the original Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2009, reaffirming its dedication to sustainability. In January 2024, the City Council unanimously approved an updated CAP targeting a 15% increase in bike, e-bike, e-scooter, and walking commuters by 2030, slashing 6,485 metric tons of CO2.

E-bikes not only cut emissions but also foster an eco-conscious community, enhancing fitness and well-being.

Join us in choosing e-Bikes for a greener, safer, and livelier Hayward!
