ANN ARBOR, MI — Ann Arbor residents can get a discount on a new bike through a city program.
The city launched a program in July by offering discounts on electric bikes from Human Electric Hybrids in an effort to achieve carbon-neutrality by 2030. Ann Arbor is now expanding by partnering with Arbor Vacuum, a local small-appliance vendor, which is selling IZIP e-bikes at their 2990 Carpenter Road store in Ann Arbor, according to a news release.

The line of bikes includes commuter, mountain and cruiser bikes, and each one will be discounted by $100 below their lowest listed price if customers mention the e-bike discount program during the sale, according to a news release. Ann Arbor aims to reduce transportation-related emissions as part of the city’s A2Zero efforts to create a greener future.
Ann Arbor unanimously adopts ambitious roadmap to carbon-neutrality
“Decreasing reliance on fossil-fuel powered vehicles, increasing use of public transit and increasing micro-mobility options, including making it easier for people to walk and bike, are tools that can help achieve significant emissions reductions in the transportation sector,” said Missy Stults, manager of Ann Arbor’s sustainability and innovations department, in a statement.
The sustainability department aims to expand the program to include more electric and traditional bikes, along with vendors.
