Mobility Options


Learn about the different mobility options you can receive through the Clean Cars for All Program.

In addition to offering replacement vehicles, the Clean Cars for All program offers qualifying Bay Area residents the option to dismantle their old car in exchange for $7,500 in grant funding to use on public transit and for the purchase of an electric bicycle (e-bike) and bike accessories. You may combine these mobility options to best suit your mobility needs (e.g. $1,700 for an e-bike and $5,800 for public transit).

Funds awarded for these mobility options are loaded onto pre-paid cards that are valid for either 30 months or until all funds are expended, whichever occurs sooner. Grantees may only use the funds on these pre-paid cards for mobility option purchases, which is limited to public transit and e-bike and bike accessory purchases.

Public Transit Card

The pre-paid card can be used to load funds onto a Clipper Card for public transit, which can be used on over 20 Bay Area transit systems. Households of more than one person may use the grant to fund additional Clipper Cards for other members of their household.

The pre-paid card can be used to purchase an e-bike and bike accessories. All bike-related purchases must be pre-approved by staff. Households of more than one person may purchase additional e-bikes with the $7,500 grant. Grantees may use a portion of the grant for e-bike accessories (e.g. helmets, lights, cargo equipment, etc.). The remaining grant amount on the card can be used for public transit with the same restrictions and requirements listed above.

An e-bike is a bicycle with a battery and electric motor that takes the sweat and effort out of bicycling. E-bikes make it practical to carry heavier loads, go longer distances, and climb steep hills. Qualifying e-bikes must be equipped with fully operable pedals, an electric motor of 750 watts or less, and be clearly labeled as either Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3.
