Eligible Utah residents can receive vouchers for select e-bikes in an effort to improve Utah’s air quality

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (September 1, 2023) — The Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR) and Magnum Bikes are reopening applications for their e-bike incentive program for all Utah residents. The program offers up to $800 off the purchase of select Magnum e-bikes and up to $1,200 off select Magnum cargo e-bikes. For eligible income-qualified residents, these voucher amounts go up to $1,000 and $1,400 respectively.

Applications originally launched on June 23 to Salt Lake County residents only. Within less than a week, the program received over 1,500 applications, 219 of which were for the income-qualified vouchers.

“We saw overwhelming popularity and success with the program in June. Over 250 participants have already redeemed their vouchers, which means 250 more e-bikes are on the roads instead of cars,” says Kim Frost, UCAIR Executive Director. “We are so excited to reopen the applications to continue the collective effort to improve Utah’s air quality.”

Utah residents must submit an application to receive a Magnum e-bike voucher code. The application link goes live on Friday, September 1 at 12 p.m., and the vouchers are made available on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 1,000 eligible applicants. Applications will close once all 1,000 vouchers have been distributed.

There are two levels of vouchers available: standard and income-qualified. For the standard voucher, all Utah residents age 18 and over can save up to $600 on select commuter e-bikes, $800 on select cruiser e-bikes and $1,200 on select cargo e-bikes. For the income-qualified voucher, Utah residents who meet income-qualified requirements can save up to $800, $1,000 and $1,400 respectively. “Ride Now, Pay Over Time” payment plans with interest as low as 0% are available to pay remaining balances in monthly installments.

As a sustainable transportation option, e-bikes help reduce the reliance on fossil fuel-powered vehicles.

“The electric motors in e-bikes generate zero emissions, which improves air quality while also offering an easier ride compared to traditional bikes,” says Jesse Lapin, Magnum Bikes Chief Operating Officer. “We are so happy that more Utahns will have access to e-bikes and can contribute to cleaner air for all.”
