Today, #DamienTalks with Jeannie Ward-Waller, the Streetsie-Award-Winning activist with CalBike about a proposal to provide rebates for people purchasing bicycles for their commute. The Air Resources Board already provides rebates to those purchasing hybrid, low-emission and zero emission vehicles. So why not provide the same benefit to those purchasing bicycles, the ultimate zero emission vehicle?

CalBike presented it's proposal to ARB earlier this year, and Ward-Waller reports that discussions with staff have been positive. However, ultimately the decision will be made by the Governor-appointed Board and there's many chances to get involved.

First, if the ARB is coming to your town for a public hearing, go to the meeting and let them know how you feel. Also, you can write to them via this action alert at the Fix California Roads website.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.
