Brighton & Hove City Council is supporting local businesses and organisations to use and switch to electric cargo (eCargo) bikes for deliveries of goods and services. To do this we have a subsidy to help businesses that apply to switch to a third party eCargo bike delivery service. Your business could be eligible for £125 to help make this change.

About the project

We are encouraging local businesses to change the way they deliver goods and services across the city by using eCargo bikes. This will contribute towards BHCC Carbon Neutral 2030 goal and proposed car free city centre. 

How we're supporting businesses to start using eCargo bikes

To support you we're offering:

  • a subsidy of £125 towards switching to eCargo bike deliveries- These are offered on a first come first served basis
  • impartial expert advice on the best eCargo bike to suit your budget and business needs
  • free rider training 
  • marketing and promotion of your business as a showcase of good practice for clean and sustainable business deliveries
